We are debating the basic rights of the House. When I was Minister of Housing and Local Government, the present Foreign Secretary—and perfectly within his rights—frequently asked the Government of the day what was covered and was not covered in Financial Resolutions. That is all I am asking the right hon. Lady. If she says that we can move any Amendment to the Bill within the Financial Resolution—always subject to the Chair—then I am completely satisfied. But it is not at all odd that we should ask for this assurance.
