My Lords, I beg to move the Motion standing in my name on the Order Paper.
The report informs the House about developments in the security of the Parliamentary Estate and, in particular, the appointment of a new security co-ordinator. The Speaker of the House of Commons and I will shortly interview suitable candidates. The responsibilities of the new post are set out in the report; I should also emphasise that Black Rod will continue to hold executive responsibility for the security of this House.
The second part of the report proposes the creation of a freedom of information advisory panel and is, I hope, self-explanatory.
The report can be found at: http://www. publications.parliament.uk/pa/ld200304/ldselect/ldhouse/196/196.pdf.
