HL Deb 28 February 1996 vol 569 c1458

3.24 p.m.

Lord Strathclyde

My Lords, at a convenient moment after 4.15 p.m., my noble friend the Leader of the House will, with the leave of the House, repeat a Statement that is to be made in another place on Northern Ireland.

I should also like to say a word about today's debate standing in the name of the noble Lord, Lord Winston. Other than the mover, Front Bench spokesmen and the Minister replying, speakers will be limited to 10 minutes. I should remind your Lordships that if any noble Lord speaks at greater length he will do so at the expense of subsequent speakers in the debate. I also remind your Lordships that when the digital clock shows 10 minutes the full 10 minutes have elapsed and the speaker will already be trespassing on the time of others.
