On a point of order, Lady Winterton. I seek your advice on the tabling of amendments. As we all know, we have had a bank holiday, and a number of people were hoping to table amendments to the latter parts of the Bill in the normal way. If they are tabled today, they will clearly be starred amendments. Would you would look favourably on such amendments?

The advice to give to the hon. Gentleman is that there have been weeks in which to table amendments, and I would not look favourably on his suggestion at present.
