§ 3.6 p.m.
§ Lord Grocott
My Lords, I shall say a quick word about business later today. With permission, there will be two Statements. The first—on the EU Summit—will be made as soon as convenient after 4.30 p.m. and will be repeated by my noble friend the Leader of the House. Later, at around 6.45 p.m., a Statement will be repeated by my noble friend Lord Rooker on regional referendums.
In order to be clear, the business scheduled for the dinner break, which, as noble Lords know, normally comes at 7.30 p.m., will come immediately after the regional referendums Statement. A further minor adjustment, which I think is common sense, is that we shall return to the debate on the Pensions Bill no sooner than 8 p.m. In straightforward terms, that means that the minimum gap in the debate on the Pensions Bill will be from 6.45 p.m., when the Statement starts, until 8 p.m. I hope that that is clear.
