§ 59. Mr. Simon Thomas
To ask the President of the Council what assessment he has made of the impact of programming motions on the number of amendments to Bills discussed. 
§ Mr. Bradshaw
I understand that some groups of amendments on programmed bills have not been reached. If there is engagement on all sides, I hope the number of such groups can be minimised. We should also remember that in the past, many groups of amendments on guillotined bills were not discussed.
