I am grateful to have been called when I was not able to be present for the whole debate. I will try to keep my remarks brief, because I know that other colleagues want to speak.
It is an example of the journey I have made in my 14 years in this House that my maiden speech was a Eurosceptic speech that followed a speech by a Labour Eurosceptic, Kelvin Hopkins. I will now make a resolutely pro-remain, pro-European speech following the excellent speech by one of the Members whom I most admire in this House, Jess Phillips.
