Order. What I am going to do is this. In a moment, I shall read out the title of the Bill, so we will be given a time at which the clock will start ticking. I will then accept points of order.

Before I do that, please allow me to make a statement. I would like to express my gratitude—and I am sure that I speak for all hon. and right hon. Members—to the Officers and staff of the House for the hard work and dedication that they have shown and I am sure will continue to show during today's sitting.

Lords reasons further considered.

No kidding. I think they should have gone on strike and made the Honourable Members do their own damn paperwork. They might not be so keen on creating so much if this was the case.
