The Committee has determined that the following business will take place in backbench time:

The Backbench Business Committee has scheduled this motion at the start of business to enable the Chair of a select committee to present a report which is being published on that day. The Chair will speak for up to 20 minutes, taking interventions from members on issues relating to the report.

The Committee was told that many of the Government’s legislative proposals include a mutual or co-operative element and that a number of backbench Members wished to debate this subject during Co-operatives Fortnight.
