On a point of order, Mr Speaker. The House has spoken this evening. I say to the Prime Minister that, if the other place passes the Bill, this House expects him to uphold the law and to fulfil the obligations that will be placed upon him by this Bill and prevent this country from leaving the European Union on 31 October without a deal.

May I thank the Clerks for their assistance, and Sir Oliver Letwin and others for their great help? I also join my right hon. and learned Friend Keir Starmer in most warmly applauding the bravery and the courage of many on the Government Benches who have stood by their convictions in the national interest.
