On a point of order, Mr. Speaker. May I ask whether this Bill will indeed be taken at 7 o'clock, in the light of the Government motion on the Order Paper?

I can explain that. I was a little puzzled myself. I understand that the motion that the House may pass later will supersede what we are doing at the moment.

Further to that point of order, Mr. Speaker. Will you ensure that the House has an opportunity to decide whether, at 3.30 p.m., it wishes to pass the Government motion relating to Business of the House?
