I am sorry. I did not want to interrupt the flow of my hon. Friend. I just want to check something about his amendment. He is suggesting that we begin  our sittings at 10 am for all the reasons that he stated during his remarks. The amendment does not say when that sitting would finish, which is important because it has been pointed out that, by starting at 10 o’clock, the Committee will lose 35 minutes, as opposed to the amendment tabled by my right hon. Friend the Member for East Yorkshire. Does my hon. Friend the Member for Bury North anticipate that the Committee would sit in the morning for 35 minutes longer than usual, which might encroach on our ability to be in the main Chamber?
