Will the right hon. Gentleman now attempt to answer the question asked by Anna Soubry and explain the media reports? Given that the Prime Minister last night promised free votes—[Interruption.] Yes she did, at the Dispatch Box; the right hon. Gentleman should not shake his head. Can he therefore explain the reports that the right hon. Member for Broxtowe has pointed to that the amendment in the name of Damian Green will be a free vote on the Conservative Benches but the amendment in the name of Dame Caroline Spelman will be whipped against? That is an absolute disgrace and bad faith to this House.
