19.3On Fridays, no provision is made for items which on other sitting days are taken before public business and which require an appreciable amount of time for consideration. The orders of the day that may be taken on Friday are restricted to Private Members' Bills and any preliminary business (such as presentation of bills); but because the sitting begins at 9.30 am, provision is made in Standing Order No 11 for the interruption of business at 11 am for urgent questions, ministerial statements or personal statements by Members.1
