The reason for suspending standing orders and revising tomorrow's business is to allow a debate tomorrow morning on the legislative consent motion on the Compensation Bill, which was discussed in the context of the legislative statement that I made last week. I thank all members for their co-operation in scheduling the debate at short notice and, in the light of the work that he has done, I thank Des McNulty for agreeing to withdraw his motion for tomorrow's members' business debate. I hope that that co-operation will be picked up in the debate on the legislative consent motion.

I move,

That the Parliament agrees that Rule 5.6.1(c) of Standing Orders be suspended for the purposes of Members' Business on Thursday 29 June 2006.

Motion agreed to.
