HL Deb 19 December 1991 vol 533 c1466

  1. 1. Difficulties arose in Session 1990–91 when Commons amendments were considered at short notice. Large numbers of amendments sometimes had to be taken on the Floor of the House before many Peers had had an opportunity to study them in detail or to consult the relevant House of Commons Hansard.
  2. 2. The Committee acknowledges this problem. The current Companion guidance is that "when possible, reasonable notice should be given for the consideration of Commons amendments", and the availability and scale of relevant papers is an important consideration when future business is arranged. The House should bear this guidance in mind at all times.

On Question, Motion agreed to.
