HL Deb 06 May 2004 vol 660 c126WA
The Earl of Northesk

asked the Leader of the House:

Whether sittings of Grand Committees that proceed beyond the rising of the House can be properly considered as proceedings conducted while the House is in session. [HL2534]

Baroness Amos

Timings of the Grand Committees are settled by agreement in the usual channels. As with other committees, Grand Committees may meet whether or not the House is sitting.
