Business of the House (22 Oct 2015)

Given that, yesterday, even Mr Rees-Mogg expressed his concern about the performance of the other place, will the Leader of the House now agree, on the second time of asking, to bring forward a debate in Government time on the merits, performance and value for money of the other place—because we might now all agree on abolition?
