§ Mr. Wilson
asked the Lord Privy Seal how many minutes, on average, were spent per sitting day during the 1983–84 Session on the Floor of the House on Scottish business.
§ Mr. Biffen
The average number of minutes per sitting day spent on the Floor of the House on Scottish business in Session 1983–84 was 28. This figure does not include daily Adjournment debates, statements, private notice questions, applications for debates under Standing Order No. 10 and Scottish elements of Consolidated Fund and holiday Adjournment debates, as it is frequently impossible to put such business firmly into the category of Scottish business.
