§ Mr. Gordon Wilson
asked the Lord President of the Council how many minutes during Session 1981–82 were spent on the Floor of the House on Scottish business.
§ Mr. Biffen
Sixty hours and 48 minutes. This does not include daily Adjournment debates, statements, private notice questions, applications for debates under Standing Order No. 9 and Scottish elements of Consolidated Fund and holiday Adjournment debates, as it is frequently impossible to put such business firmly into the category of Scottish business.
