In my post Hell of the Dentist, I stated that the current political debate over the Treaty of Lisbon would commence on the of 29th of January and was scheduled to finish on the 9th of February.
In fact, no date has yet been fixed for the conclusion, I simply added 12 days to the first day of debate, forgetting that there may be some breaks and that, unlike the proposals for our doctors working hours, Members of Parliament don't work weekends.
Matters commenced on 29th as scheduled and proceed as follows,
6 February: Commons debate day 3: on human rights aspects of treaty
7 February: Commons debate day 4: on aspects of treaty relating to single market
From 18 February:
Commons debate day 5: Foreign policy, security and defence
Commons debate day 6: International development
Commons debate day 7: EU institutions and decision-making
Commons debate day 8: Climate change
Commons debate day 9: Bill clauses 3 to 7
Commons debate day 10: Bill clauses 3 to 7
Commons debate day 11: Schedule, new clauses and new schedules
Commons debate day 12: Remaining proceedings in bill
