On a point of order, Mr Speaker. I would like to say it is nice to be back. I just wonder what conclusion Members of the public will draw from the Chamber being used in this way. My right hon. Friend Jeremy Corbyn has made his point. I have heard from my constituency office today that residents in my constituency have had to have present parcels delivered to them because they cannot afford to buy their children presents and they have not got the money for food. The Chamber being used in this way is absolutely pathetic.
