On a point of order, Mr Howarth, can you give the Committee some guidance? We are into our third week of proceedings, but last week we received the consultation on some clauses of the Bill on the morning of our deliberations and we are now getting consultations through on other clauses. Can you, through your offices, give any guidance to the Government or Ministers to ensure that the Committee has all the evidence, so that we are well informed in our deliberations?
I am sure that the Ministers have heard the point of order. It is not within my power to ensure that any briefing or consultation papers are in the possession of the Committee. I am sure that Ministers, having heard the point of order, will take due note.
