My Lords, at a convenient moment after 3 p.m. today, my noble friend Lady Symons of Vernham Dean will, with the leave of the House, repeat a Statement that is to be made in another place on Iraq.

I take this opportunity to remind the House that the Companion indicates that discussion on a Statement should be confined to, brief comments and questions for clarification". There is a mandatory limit of 20 minutes from the end of the Minister's official reply to the Opposition spokesman.
