I thought I might give my hon. Friend some comfort on the matter of Dissolution and therefore the time available for the Bill, in that the Fixed-term Parliaments Act 2011 provides for a two-month extension of the Parliament, subject to a statutory instrument, in the event of the Prime Minister’s considering that there is a necessity for that. The hon. Member for Eltham may be able to petition the Prime Minister to do that, to help his Bill to pass.
