Order paper

Order paper

This is the first page of the order paper for Budget day, 19 May 2011 (there are another 11 pages). An order paper is produced for each day that the House sits. It sets out the day's business, including general business, the introduction of bills, reports of select committees and notices of motion. This order paper is for a Thursday, which means that government orders of the day have precedence.
