Order. I must repeat what I said. We are discussing an amendment that talks about leaving out words, that talks about putting “when” in, and that talks about Tuesday 10 February. The right hon. Gentleman and the hon. Gentleman are being tempted into discussing the merits of the Bill itself. If we can get the sittings motion sorted, then they can certainly raise the issues that they are raising now, but not during the present debate on the amendment. I would ask the hon. Member for Bury North to address his amendment. If he wants to talk on the health service—on the Bill—there is an opportunity to do that when we get to discuss the Bill, but not when he is addressing an amendment on the timetable.
