Sunday, 13 July 2008

An interesting week ahead in all Houses. Amongst the 34 bills due for consideration in the House of Representatives under the 'suspensions' procedure my personal favourite is
H.Res. 984 - Expressing support for the designation of July 26, 2008 as "National Day of the Cowboy".

Today a statement is due, which will be made first in the House of commons, and then repeated in the Lords about future reform of the House of Lords. On Wednesday there are two opposition debates in the Commons - one on Fuel Duty; and the second on Trade Unions and the Warwick Agreement.

Bothe the House of Representatives and the house of commons will be considereing intelligence matters this week.
