It is a delight to see you in the Chair, Mr. Bercow.

I was in full flow at the end of this morning’s sitting, but I shall get to what I was hoping to ask the Minister. I was surprised at a point that she made in response to my hon. Friend the Member for North-West Norfolk. She suggested that it would be best to have a consultation after the Bill has come to the House. I am curious about that practice. I appreciate that I am a fairly new boy, but would it not be better to have a consultation, as my hon. Friend suggested, prior to the Bill coming to the House, rather than afterwards?
