HC Deb 26 July 1999 vol 336 c44W
48. Mr. Bercow

To ask the President of the Council if she will ensure that oral questions to the Secretaries of State for Defence, Culture, Media and Sport, International Development and Northern Ireland last for one hour each. [91386]

Mr. Tipping

No. Within the current time available this could only be done at the expense of questions to other Ministers.

53. Mr. Amess

To ask the President of the Council what proposals she has for reform of Question Time. [91486]

Mrs. Beckett

I have no immediate plans for procedural change but am prepared to look at any constructive proposals. Some adjustment to the question rota will be discussed through the usual channels in the autumn to reflect the consequences of devolution.
