Press Release   •   Feb 12, 2010 10:11 GMT

Liberal Democrat Shadow Leader of the House, David Heath was today joined by Sir George Young in backing an amendment to establish a House Business Committee to decide the scheduling of all business before the House as recommended by the Wright Committee.

Commenting, David Heath said:

“This amendment throws down the gauntlet to Harriet Harman and the Government.

“Her reaction will show whether she is serious about major reform.

“At the very least she must now allow the House to debate and vote on what is a key recommendation from the Wright Committee."
