My Lords, when I saw Amendment 66ZB on the Marshalled List, with its strange fraction of U over 598, I thought, "I hope to God it's Jim Wallace's turn to answer the debate". I hope to match the noble and learned Lord, Lord Falconer, in his grasp of statistics, but I certainly cannot match that of the noble Lord, Lord Lipsey, because, thank God, I do not sit up at 3 am poring over electoral statistics.
