I move:

That so much of the standing orders be suspended as would prevent the following from occurring in the Federation Chamber to facilitate the consideration of the appropriation bills:

(1) on Tuesday, 27 October there to be no grievance debate;

(2) on Monday, 9 November the period from 12 noon to 1.30 pm and from 4.45 pm to 7.30 pm to be allocated to government business;

(3) on Tuesday, 10 November the Federation Chamber to meet from 12.15 pm to 1.30 pm for government business in addition to its scheduled hours of meeting;

(4) on Wednesday, 11 November the Federation Chamber to meet from 12 noon to 1.15 pm and 4 pm to 7.30 pm and there to be no constituency statements by Members; and

(5) any variation to this arrangement to be made only by a motion moved by a Minister.

Question agreed.
