The Second Reading of the Police Reform and Social Responsibility Bill is about to begin. Fifty-one speakers are scheduled with the Government Chief Whip setting a guideline of six minutes each for backbenchers’ speeches so as to achieve a finish time for the debate by about 10.30pm.
Of course, this pre-supposes that the distinguished former police chiefs and others stick to the guideline (and many of them were not in the Chamber to hear the Chief Whip).
Don’t hold your breath.
