A Motion to increase the limit of financial assistance under this Act was resolved in Committee on 17 July 2007. Due to an administrative error, the order was not made until 7 May 2008. It came into force on 8 May. I regret the delay in the completion of this order.

House of Lords: 1 and 2 Millbank

The Chairman of Committees (Lord Brabazon of Tara): At its meeting on 12 May, the Administration and Works Committee approved the detailed design plan for the first phase refurbishment of the Millbank island site. I have placed a copy of the plan in the Library of the House.
