Thank you for rescuing me, Mr Speaker. Your encyclopaedic memory is better than ours.

The Prime Minister does not want an extension. Every sinew of Government is focused on a deal. [Interruption.] Hon.

That is the right thing for the country, the right thing for Parliament and it is the right thing to do, and we will obey the law at every single point.
