That is not correct. There has been no indication of the date of the appointed day. The advice that I gave the House earlier from the Secretary of State was in respect of the running of d’Hondt. That is not necessarily the same thing as the appointed day. I cannot accept your point of order.

We move to the last grouping of Standing Orders and amendments. We may have to ask the Secretary of State for an extension beyond 10.00 pm if we are to cover this and have the Adjournment debate.

Standing Order 63 (Oath) agreed to.

Standing Order 64 (Administration of Oath) agreed to.

Standing Order 65 (Sub Judice) agreed to.
