HL Deb 29 November 2004 vol 667 c270
Lord Grocott

My Lords, I have a word about timing on today's resumed debate on the Address. There are 28 Back-Bench speakers and, as the House has already heard, there is also a Statement today. The good news is that if all contributions could be restricted to around nine minutes, we should finish by ten o'clock. "Restricted" is not too cruel a word really because nine minutes is not bad. So that is the advice for today.
