I thank the hon. Gentleman for that point of order. I understand that Mr Jones spoke to my predecessor in the Chair because he is speaking to his new clause, so, very unusually, given that Dame Diana Johnson was happy to swap places, that seemed reasonable. There is nothing sinister about it and it has not altered where Dan Carden comes in the call list, but for the value of the debate, it was felt to be reasonable that the person speaking to the new clause could move forward. It does not affect when the hon. Gentleman is speaking, I can assure him.
