I have to say that the Minister’s tone does not really reflect that which some of his hon. Friends used when addressing this debate. I have felt completely patronised at times today, because people on the Government Benches have been shouting, “You don’t understand this Bill.” Just because we take a different view or come at things from a different angle does not mean that we do not understand. Sir Alan Duncan shakes his head, but it was offensive to have to listen to that nonsense, particularly when it was directed at my hon. and learned Friend Joanna Cherry, who is a learned QC and certainly does know what she is talking about.
