Any Other Business

The Llywydd reminded Business Managers about party spokespeople taking too long to question Cabinet Secretaries/Ministers on statements, and those Cabinet Secretaries/Ministers taking too long in their responses.  She asked that Members were more concise to allow her to call as many Members as possible.


The Llywydd informed Business Managers that she intends to put a paper on the agenda for next week’s meeting proposing that party leaders should no longer be able to enter the ballot for First Minister’s Questions, and that Business Managers may wish to discuss this with their groups beforehand.


The Llywydd informed Business Managers that there might be a need for an additional Plenary meeting on Thursday or Friday, between Commons and Lords ping pong on the EU (Withdrawal) Bill if a vote on an LCM was required.
