John Howell hardly ever rebelled against their party in this parliament
My intention was that there would be more time in general for the discussion of the finer points of the Bill. We are not discussing the content this morning, but there are a lot of fine points that it will be necessary to examine in great detail. The extra time that we would buy by this would allow us to do that.
I just wanted to point out that my amendment, in setting a slightly later date—by a week—to the start of the Bill Committee, is about reasonableness and an assessment of the logistics required for the Committee as a whole.
Thank you, Sir Roger, for that advice. My own postbag has been absolutely silent on the subject. I have had no representations from any of the organisations mentioned on Second Reading, nor have I had any discussions with anyone about the issue. So far, nobody has come forward to suggest a view that they wish the Committee to consider.
