I welcome the Minister's statement. In it, he said that he will bring forward the reform of the rules and that "we will publish this next stage before the summer recess." Will he confirm not only that the Government will publish them before the next recess, but that we will be able to debate them before that recess, and that what he brings forward will take into account the will of the House, given that the original motion called for

"revised proposals that extend an equal right of residence to all Gurkhas."?

That is what the House voted for; that is what the House expects.
