I have a brief statement to make. I have this day written on behalf of the House to Lady Mallalieu expressing our sympathy at the death of Sir Lancelot Mallalieu, who served this House as Deputy Speaker for several years. He served the House with infinite patience and good humour and he sought to maintain the highest traditions that surround this Chair. Sir Lancelot Mallalieu was held in high esteem by hon. Members on both sides of the House, and we salute his memory as one who was a true and faithful servant of the Commons.
