star this property answer text <p>Where the Speakers List for a debate is exceptionally long, it is open to the Usual Channels to consider special arrangements - including an early sitting of the House (as was arranged for the Second Reading of the European Union Referendum Bill) or adjourning the debate and resuming it on a subsequent day. However, in considering whether to make such arrangements, account must also be taken of members wishing to speak who may not be able to be present on a subsequent day, or for an earlier sitting, and would consequently not be able to participate if such an arrangement were made at short notice. For this reason, case-by-case consideration of the best way forward may serve the House better than a general principle, and so I do not propose to initiate discussions along the lines suggested at this time.</p><br /> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Questions for short debate, which remain the principal means by which backbenchers are able to secure 1-1½ hour debates in the Chamber or Grand Committee, are, by design, treated as questions rather than motions. As such there is no right of reply.* Standing Order 32(2) is also clear in that members may only speak once to questions for short debate, save, with the leave of the House, to clarify a point they have made in their speech.</p><p>The speaking time limits for additional backbench contributors in the twenty-five questions for short debate we have had so far in this session have ranged from two to ten minutes. Any change to the present arrangements would of course be a matter for the Procedure Committee. I can only note that revising the procedure so that the member asking the question had a right of reply within the 1 or 1½ hour time limit would reduce the time available to other members when debates are well-subscribed.</p><p><br>*Paragraph 6.32 of The Companion to the Standing Orders and Guide to the Proceedings of the House of Lords.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Government values the work of the select committees of this House, and understands the importance of proper engagement with that work. Therefore the Government aims to respond to reports within two months of their publication. However, sometimes circumstances dictate that it will not be possible to provide a response within this timeframe. In such instances the relevant government department will maintain contact with the relevant select committee chairman and secretariat.</p><p>I have written to Lords ministers to reiterate the importance of providing timely responses to select committee reports. There are currently 15 government responses that have not been received by the relevant select committees within the two-month period. I am assured that ministers are working hard to ensure outstanding responses are issued as soon as possible.</p><p>Data on response times is made available by the Committee Office but has not been routinely collected for the years requested. However, as a member of the Liaison Committee, I welcome the fact that, since the 2014-15 session, government response dates have been published in the Liaison Committee’s annual reports. Links to the reports containing the information for the most recent three sessions are set out below.</p><p><strong>Session 2016-17: <a href="https://publications.parliament.uk/pa/ld201719/ldselect/ldliaison/13/13.pdf" target="_blank">https://publications.parliament.uk/pa/ld201719/ldselect/ldliaison/13/13.pdf<br></a></strong><strong>Session 2015-16: <a href="http://www.publications.parliament.uk/pa/ld201617/ldselect/ldliaisn/26/26.pdf" target="_blank">http://www.publications.parliament.uk/pa/ld201617/ldselect/ldliaisn/26/26.pdf<br></a></strong><strong>Session 2014-15: <a href="http://www.publications.parliament.uk/pa/ld201516/ldselect/ldliaison/5/5.pdf" target="_blank">http://www.publications.parliament.uk/pa/ld201516/ldselect/ldliaison/5/5.pdf</a></strong></p>
