HC Deb 09 July 2002 vol 388 c841W
62. Sandra Osborne

To ask the President of the Council what assessment he has made of the Westminster Hall experiment; and what plans he has to develop the experiment. [65362]

Mr. Bradshaw

Westminster Hall has offered backbenchers and select committees vastly increased opportunities for debate. The Select Committee on Modernisation of the House of Commons will need to review its operation before the end of the Session and I hope their recommendations will build on its success.
