3.4 The Lords Committee agreed with the Commons Committee's approach to deciding on the issue of "appropriateness" in particular cases. This will involve forming a view as to whether the Committee feels itself competent to come to the necessary judgements in respect of any proposal on behalf of its House. If the Committee concludes that it is not, it will make clear its view that the proposal in question should be debated and voted upon by the whole House.
3.5 Given its reassurance about not bringing forward proposals for RROs that are both "large and controversial", the Government considers that to be the right way forward.
3.6 The Government would also like once again to thank the Committee for the flexibility it has shown regarding the laying of proposals to date, especially given its other responsibilities.
