I thank the Minister for this Motion and the effort being made to clear some of this huge backlog, of which I, among others, have been pretty critical. However, does he not think that, since the Government operate under a requirement to respond to a Select Committee report within two months, it would be quite reasonable if the House set a limit on the time that it could delay putting this on the agenda? Would he be prepared to discuss that with the usual channels?
