Mr Deputy Speaker, who represents Ribble Valley, in which Samlesbury sits, together with many other colleagues, regardless of party, and I have sought to adopt the same bipartisan approach in our pursuit of BAE interests on our sides of the Pennines. We are in full support of what Mr Davis and my right hon. Friend Alan Johnson are seeking to do. It would be terrible and hopeless if we turned this into a 2011 contest across the Pennines.
