My Lords, I have not been in post for eternity. I repeat what I have already said with all due humility: I hear what the noble Lord says, but my noble friend the Captain of the Gentlemen-at-Arms and I have sought to address the concern that he articulated. As I said, we have already debated 28 reports this Session and two are tabled for debate tomorrow. The backlog is being attacked, and I hope that that will continue. I have had the honour of chairing a Select Committee of your Lordships’ House and believe that Select Committee reports should be debated in this House, so, for as long as I am the Leader of the House, I will try to ensure that they are.

Motion agreed.
