I am pleased to announce that I am today publishing "The Government's Draft Legislative Programme 2008-09—Preparing Britain for the Future" (CM7372). The details of which will be available at www.commonsleader.gov.uk/draftprogramme and in the Vote Office later today.

The website will contain details of regional events being hosted by regional Ministers (www.commons leader.gov.uk/regionalactivity). It will also contain a section where the public can comment on the Government's proposals (www.commonsleader.gov.uk/yourvoice). The consultation will close on 6 August 2008.

A summary of the programme will also be available at www.direct.gov.uk/draftprogramme.

I will announce shortly the date when Members will have the opportunity to debate this on the Floor of the House.
