Part of the debate – in a Public Bill Committee at 1:00 pm on 5th February 2009.
I welcome hon. Members to the afternoon sitting of the Public Bill Committee on the Policing and Crime Bill. If I look a little weary before the end of our sitting, that is because, having left this room at 10.30 am, I was in the Chamber until 12.15 pm and in my office from 12.20 pm until 12.55 pm, when I had to come back to Committee. I have not had any refreshment, so I am sure that members of the Committee will make my job easier.
