It is 1 o’clock, so we can continue our deliberations on this important public Bill.

From time to time, I remind hon. Members that I do not like knives, and I hope that there will not be any during our proceedings, but we have an out date. This is nothing to do with the Whip, who has been affable and agreeable, and has put no pressure on the Chair, as he should not. However, I ask the Committee, particularly the Opposition parties, whose contribution to a Bill is critical, to bear in mind that we have an out date.
