Select Committee on Defence First Special Report


Exchange of correspondence between the Rt Hon Margaret Beckett MP, Leader of the House, and the Chairman of the Committee concerning the timing of defence debates

Letter from the Rt Hon Margaret Beckett MP (20 January 2000)

  Thank you for your letter of 13 December regarding the timing of Defence debates.

  The Business Managers have noted the Committee's comments with regards to the publication of its report on Monday 7 February; the timing of the three other defence debates during the session and; for the annual two day defence debate to follow shortly after publication of your report.

  We are not able to give you a definite date on the two day defence debate, but will confirm through the usual channels once we have a clearer idea of business during February.

  I hope this is helpful.
