My right hon. Friend is making an excellent speech. Is it not also true that the Prime Minister has invited the Leader of the Opposition to discuss the political declaration and the withdrawal agreement? The amendments tabled by Sir William Cash would effectively curtail those discussions. Should we not pass the Bill cleanly in order to maximise the opportunities for that process?
