§ The Lord Privy Seal and Leader of the House of Commons (Mr. John Biffen)
On a point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker. I should like to make a brief announcement about the remaining business for today. The Government intend to proceed with the remaining stages of the Weights and Measures Bill [Lords]. Following discussions with the usual channels, we have decided not to proceed with the remaining stages of the Housing Bill [Lords], the Housing Associations Bill [Lords], the Housing (Consequential Provisions) Bill [Lords] and the Landlord and Tenant Bill [Lords]. They will now be taken on Tuesday, 29 October.
§ Mr. Nicholas Brown (Newcastle upon Tyne, East)
Further to that point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker. May I welcome the statement by the Leader of the House? It is important to preserve the rights of the House of Commons in such matters.
