On a point of order, Madam Deputy Speaker. I have noticed that motion 5 would have discharged the Secretary of State for Justice from the Modernisation Committee and replaced him with the new Leader of the House. Many people on both sides of the House are concerned that someone who has such a party role could be appointed as Leader of the House and Chairman of the Modernisation Committee. Have you, Madam Deputy Speaker, heard why the motion has not been moved tonight and whether that is due to concerns about the role of the Leader of the House?

The hon. Gentleman has raised what he considers to be a point of order, but it is not a point of order for the Chair. The motion just has not been moved.
