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.
