On a point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker. I do not wish to be misunderstood, but Fridays are private Members' days. In today's debate, which had great relevance, the two Front Bench spokesmen spoke for one hour and six minutes. As a result, many hon. Members were not able to be called or had to curtail their remarks. I register the fact that Back Benchers surely have their rights.
