No, I have only 30 seconds left.

The right hon. and learned Member for Rushcliffe brought to our attention the great importance of these issues. I am grateful for his continuing contribution to the debate, and I have no doubt that he will continue to raise the issues at every possible opportunity. I can confirm that, although we have referred to this as consolidating legislation, there will be an opportunity to examine each element of the terrorism legislation, especially the amendments on the control orders. He commented earlier on the time scale for this debate. We are not on the eve of a recess; there is a full day's sitting tomorrow, and we have had a proper debate today.

Question put and agreed to.


That the draft Prevention of Terrorism Act 2005 (Continuance in force of sections 1 to 9) Order 2006, which was laid before this House on 2 February, be approved.

Listening to the audio for this, the speaker says: "The question is as on the order paper, the ayes (people say aye), the noes (no-one says no), the ayes have it". I think this means there was no division because nobody said "no".

They don't bother to vote on some things.
