When the House resumes on Tuesday, 4 October the Government intends to move the first reading of the Crown Entities Reform Bill, the remaining stages of the Criminal Procedure (Reform and Modernisation) Bill, the remaining stages of the Subordinate Legislation (Confirmation and Validation) Bill (No 3), and the first reading of the Victims of Crime Reform Bill. The adoption of amendments to the Standing Orders, as recommended by the Standing Orders Committee, will also be debated, and a further seven retiring members will give their valedictory statements. On Thursday it is the Government’s intention to move that urgency be accorded to the remaining stages of the Video Camera Surveillance (Temporary Measures) Bill and the Sleepover Wages (Settlement) Bill, as well as the adjournment debate.
I thank the Acting Leader of the House for his full explanation of his intentions for next week. I want to check with him as to whether one of two things has been sorted out: either the Attorney-General on the Video Camera Surveillance (Temporary Measures) Bill, or the catering from Bellamy’s for the weekend.
That member has been in this House a lot longer than I have, and he will know that what goes on in a select committee stays in a select committee until such time as it is reported back to this House. I am sure Bellamy’s will do its best to maintain its very high standards when it comes to food.
