On a point of order, Presiding Officer. You will recall that, at yesterday's Parliamentary Bureau meeting, the Minister for Parliamentary Business, after raising the issue himself, refused to indicate to the bureau that he would abide by the convention that copies of ministerial statements are made available to business managers one hour ahead of their delivery in the Parliament. As expected, the Minister for Parliamentary Business did not observe that convention today. That comes on top of other issues that were raised at yesterday's bureau meeting, dealing with the confidentiality of bureau papers. I seek your guidance as to whether those issues will be on the agenda for the bureau's next meeting.

As a business manager, Mr Rumbles, that is a matter for you to raise, if you wish to do so, at the next bureau meeting.
