Forthcoming Business

The Leader drew attention to the second reading of the Safeguarding Vulnerable Groups Bill on Monday, June 19 (Beverley Hughes would lead for the Government), which would establish a new vetting and barring scheme for those who worked with children and vulnerable adults; the debate would follow Home Office oral questions. On Tuesday, the House would debate remaining stages of the Children and Adoption Bill (Beverley Hughes), dealing with strengthening adoption and controls for inter-country arrangements. The Opposition had proposed the subjects for two half-day debates on Wednesday – one on the future of the BBC (Shaun Woodward for the Government) and the second on "the failure of the Government’s housing and planning policy" (Ruth Kelly for the Government). On Thursday, there would be a debate on defence policy on a motion for the adjournment (Des Browne). The House would not sit on Friday, June 23.

He also pointed out that, in the following week, the House would debate the second reading of the Charities Bill (Lords) on June 26; there would be a debate on June 27 on pensions. This would be held on a votable Government motion. The business on Wednesday, June 28, would begin with a debate on a motion to approve codes of practice on the Police and Criminal Evidence Act, relating to a longer period of detention of terrorist suspects. The Leader explained that the reason for the delay in holding the debate was because the Opposition had insisted on a consultation period on the codes.
