27 October 2004 Press notice No. 13 Session 2003-04



The Committee will take evidence in public in a Committee Room in the House of Commons as follows:

9.45 a.m. Rt Hon Sir Alan Haselhurst MP, Chairman of Ways and Means,  Derek Conway MP and Mr Eric Illsley MP, Members of the Chairmen’s Panel

The House accepted new sitting hours in January 2003, in response to the Committee’s Report, Modernisation of the House of Commons: A Reform Programme (HC 1168, Session 2001-02).    The new arrangements, which were initially adopted for an experimental period, expire at the end of the present Parliament and the Committee is now reviewing their operation in order to inform the House’s decision about sitting arrangements in the next Parliament.

This will be the fourth public evidence session for this inquiry.  Further details of the inquiry, including transcripts of previous evidence sessions, can be found on these pages.

As Committee Rooms are liable to change, those attending are advised to check the room location on arrival.  The Committee Office recorded information line (020 7219 2033) provides details of select and standing committee meetings being held within the next two days.
