The Daily Program is available about one hour before the House sits.
The MPI is published as a separate document on Wednesdays and Thursdays. On Tuesdays, it is incorporated into the Daily Program.
The Daily Program is available about an hour before the House sits and lists the expected business the House will deal with that day. It is called 'the Blue' because it is printed on blue paper to distinguish it from other documents used in the Chamber.
On Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday after question time, in accordance with the House's standing orders, it is possible for the House to discuss a matter of public importance (MPI). If an MPI is proposed by a Member, and is in order, the subject of the MPI will be announced shortly after midday on each of these days and made available on this page.
