Mr. Speaker

For the debate on Thursday 23 July on the Second Reading of the Consolidated Fund (Appropriation) Bill, hon. Members may hand in to my office by 9 am on Wednesday 22 July their names and the topics they wish to raise. The ballot will be carried out as on the last occasion. An hon. Member may hand in only his or her name and one topic.

The debate will cover all the main Estimates originally presented for the current financial year in House of Commons Papers Nos. 190 and 193 and the Supplementary and revised Estimates presented since then in House of Commons Papers Nos. 266,381,382 and 405. It will be in order on Second Reading to raise any topic falling within the compass of those Estimates.

I shall put out the result of the ballot later on 22 July.
