Further to that point of order, Mr. Cook. I want to associate myself and my hon. Friend the Member for Gordon with the comments of the Minister and the hon. Member for Rutland and Melton, particularly concerning the various Officers of the House who have worked so hard to make our deliberations so efficient and speedy. I also thank you, Mr. Cook, and Mr. Gale. It has been apparent to a number of us this afternoon that you have not been without personal discomfort and the fact that you have been prepared to endure that for the smooth running of the House is much appreciated.
