I am grateful to the hon. Gentleman. My understanding at present is that there has been no breach of order. However, I would say to Nadine Dorries and to the House that temperate language, moderation and good humour are the essential features referred to in “Erskine May”, and it is best if they inform our debates.

This sentiment is expressed on p444 of the 24th Edition of Erskine May.

The exact quote is:

"Good temper and moderation are the characteristics of parliamentary language."
