HL Deb 15 December 1998 vol 595 c1250
Lord Hoyle

My Lords, before we move to the Statement on the Pensions Green Paper, I remind the House that the Companion indicates that discussion on a Statement should be confined to brief comments and questions for clarification. Peers who speak at length do so at the expense of other noble Lords.

The Earl of Clanwilliam

My Lords, before the Minister sits down, can he say whether the Green Paper will be available? Apparently it is not available in the Printed Paper Office at this minute.

Lord Hoyle

My Lords, we are rather astonished on this side, but I shall certainly look into it.
