On a point of order, Madam Deputy Speaker. During Prime Minister’s Question Time earlier today, when Oliver Dowden was responding on behalf of the Government, he made a number of erroneous references to me. I seem to be living rent-free in his head, alongside the Prime Minister. He did not inform me that he would be raising these issues during Prime Minister’s Question Time, to which I would have thought the normal courtesy of the House should apply. I should be grateful for your guidance, Madam Deputy Speaker, about what opportunities there are for the right hon. Member for Hertsmere to correct the record in the House.

I thank the right hon. Gentleman for his point of order. Obviously, as Mr Speaker has said on a number of occasions, it is important for information given by Ministers, Deputy Prime Ministers and Prime Ministers to be accurate. I am sure that those on the Treasury Bench have heard the right hon. Gentleman’s views and that they will be conveyed to the Deputy Prime Minister, and if any corrections need to be made, I hope that they will be made quickly.
