I begin by echoing the thoughtful comments of my right hon. Friend Sir John Hayes about the Under-Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, my hon. Friend Rebecca Pow. Of course, the thoughts and prayers of the whole House are with her and her family at this very difficult time.

Mr Speaker, you suggested that our last exchange was of such cerebral quality that it should be framed and presented to my right hon. Friend the Member for South Holland and The Deepings, and I have the framed copy here. I will, of course, present it to him directly after business questions.
