Lord Carter

My Lords, at a convenient moment after 3.30 p.m. my noble friend Lady Hayman will, with the leave of the House, repeat a Statement that is to be made in another place on planning for the communities of the future. I would like to 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 initial reply to the Opposition spokesmen.
