There will be a full debate in the House on Monday on the current economic situation. More than forty peers will be taking part. Lord Myners will lead for the Government. Speakers will include eight peers who have served in the Treasury (three as Chancellor of the Exchequer), economists (including four professors), leading figures in business and the City (such as Baroness Noakes and Lords Blyth of Rowington, Bilimoria, James, and Oakeshott) and several with central experience in Government (including Lord Powell of Bayswater). It should be notable for its quality as well as its length.
