On at least one day in Grand Committee for every six sitting weeks in the session;
That the Committee schedule a one-hour topical Question for Short Debate each week, from the start of the session until the end of January, to be taken on Thursday between the two time-limited debates;
That the Procedure Committee review and report on the work of the Backbench Debates Committee before the end of the 2013-14 session, with a view to recommending whether or not the Backbench Debates Committee should be established as a sessional select committee.
