Orders of the Day: New Clause 1 — Defences (12 May 2006)

Peter Atkinson: I am grateful to the Father of the House, the right hon. Member for Swansea, West (Mr. Williams), for that explanation. I viewed new clause 1 as a useful probing measure.

It is important. This...

Peter Atkinson: I echo what was said by my hon. Friend the Member for Christchurch (Mr. Chope): there are a number of issues still to be debated. Although we all wish the Bill a good passage, it does deserve a little more debate, and I therefore hope that, with pole position for the next opportunity, we can deal with them on Third Reading at that time. It being half-past Two o'clock, the debate stood...
