PROCEEDINGS OF THE GROUP
We were appointed by the Leader of the House
following the Procedure Committee's 4th Report of 1997-98, to
which the House agreed on 16th November 1998. We met seven times,
including a meeting with four new members of the House and another
with the three Chief Whips. We invited all members of the House
to submit their views in writing; we are grateful to the 25 back-benchers
who did so.
