I will complete this point, and then I will give way.

I was glad to see that the Prime Minister was here earlier. Yesterday, during Prime Minister’s Question Time, she told the House that “the approach”—the Government’s approach to the Bill—

Vol. 628, c. 148.]

I read the report again last night, and I have doubts about that endorsement.
