HC Deb 15 July 1997 vol 298 c152W
40. Mr. Pickthall

To ask the President of the Council if she will bring forward proposals to put Privy Counsellors on an equal footing with other hon. Members in parliamentary debates. [6732]

Mrs. Ann Taylor

I have no plans to do so. The Select Committee on the Modernisation of the House of Commons may wish to consider this in due course, but for the present I think this should be left to the discretion of Madam Speaker.
