I join hon. Members in saluting my fellow Dorset county Member, my hon. Friend Mr Ellwood, for his quiet bravery yesterday. It is a hallmark of his character that he stands below the Bar of the House today.

Does my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister agree with these words, which were written by a worker on the London underground yesterday afternoon? They were penned on a public notice board shortly after the events. My judgment is that he or she spoke for the whole country, irrespective of faith or creed, when they wrote: “All terrorists are politely reminded that this is London, and whatever you do to us, we will drink tea and jolly well carry on.”
