On a point of order, Mr Speaker. I am grateful to you for your ruling earlier this afternoon that the phrase "rank hypocrisy" is unparliamentary language. I should therefore like to withdraw the phrase, which I used earlier today, and apologise to Andy Burnham, who may have felt that it was directed at him. Under no circumstances would I wish to accuse him of any activity that was in any way covered by the use of unparliamentary language.
