Further to that point of order, Mr. Atkinson. I do not wish to criticise the Chair or answer back, but my point is relevant. The Government—like any Government—are well aware that they can get their business through the Commons without any great difficulty. Therefore, we go through the whole process that we have seen in the Commons. The concern is that in the Lords, where there is no majority—at least as the Lords is currently constituted—amendments can be tabled that have a lot more sway than is, perhaps, the case here. That is the reason why I wish to put the issue on the record.
