My hon. Friend’s points are particularly relevant to new clauses 4 and 5 in the name of Sir William Cash which seek, I believe artificially, to restrict the nature of amendments that could be placed in relation to any motion on an extension. It is very relevant to new clauses 4 and 5 for us on this side of the House to say “No, there should be greater latitude for the sort of issues to come into that.”
