My Noble Friend the Government Chief Whip makes regular offers of time, both on the Floor of the House and in Grand Committee, for debates on Select Committee reports to the Committee Office. The Committee Office then coordinates among Chairmen to determine which reports are debated on such occasions and in what order.

Debates covering nine reports have already taken place this session.
