40. Mr. Spearing

asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster what was the number of debates held since May 1979 relating to documents, other than budgetary proposals, due for discussion at European Economic Community Council of Ministers' meetings.

Mr. St. John-Stevas

13, covering 54 European Community documents and we are to have another debate today.

41. Mr. Gourlay

asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster if he will review the present procedure on the allocation of Gallery tickets specially requested some weeks in advance for Tuesdays' and Thursdays' Question Time; what proportion is requested by and granted to Members' secretaries; and how many are allocated at the Admission Order Office on the personal request of Members.

Mr. St. John-Stevas

No record is kept, as a request from a Member's private secretary for Gallery tickets is treated as a request from a Member.
