I am puzzled that my right hon. Friend is puzzled. No, I have no personal or political objections to my hon. Friend Fiona Mactaggart—why should I?—but as I thought I had made perfectly clear, I am opposed to a system in which, in the name of the Prime Minister, a Member’s name is simply put before us and we say yea or nay. Let me make it quite clear to my right hon. Friend that I am in favour of democracy and of people going on Committees subject to election, and that includes the ISC.
