My Lords, as noble Lords will know, my noble friend Lord McKenzie of Luton will shortly repeat a Statement on welfare reform. There are 33 Members on the speakers list on the humble Address today. In order to accommodate the Statement and to allow us to rise at the target rising time of 10 pm, it would be helpful if Back-Bench contributions could be kept to a maximum of eight minutes.
