John Bercow: Order. We cannot have side discussions. There is clearly considerable unhappiness about the matter, but it cannot be resolved now, and the Leader of the House should be able to proceed with her answers.
John Bercow: I think the right hon. Member for South Holland and The Deepings (Mr Hayes) will get such a debate. As the Leader of the House says, he has raised an extremely serious matter, but it is no bad thing that he has done so, characteristically, with the eloquence of Cicero.
John Bercow: I can only assume that “screw-up” is a technical term that the hon. Member for Aberdeen North (Kirsty Blackman) has devised to describe the situation that displeases her.
John Bercow: I think the Leader of the House wishes to respond.
John Bercow: The Minister’s meeting with the hon. Gentleman must have been a culturally up-market affair indeed.
John Bercow: It is not a museum, but there is a bit of latitude, I suppose.
John Bercow: I call Andrew Rosindell. [Interruption.] Oh, what a shame—we were going to hear about more international sport being played in the UK. I hope that the hon. Gentleman is well, but I am afraid he is not here and we must move on.
John Bercow: It sounds like a most magnificent event, but I should gently point out to the hon. Member for Redditch (Rachel Maclean) that it is the men’s singles final at Wimbledon that day.
John Bercow: We are now fully informed about the Wakefield situation and we are immensely grateful to the hon. Lady.
John Bercow: Well done Wick, I think we should say. Splendid.
John Bercow: On the subject of the north of England, let us hear from north Yorkshire. Mr Kevin Hollinrake.
John Bercow: Order. I will be able to call all remaining questioners if they confine themselves to a short sentence each.
John Bercow: If the hon. Member for Aberdeen South (Ross Thomson) could confine himself to four minutes or less, that would be appreciated by the House. I call Ross Thomson.
John Bercow: Order. Because the hon. Lady was on the list, I will call Carol Monaghan next, but I hope the hon. Gentleman will be accommodated.
John Bercow: That is extremely generous of the hon. Gentleman.
John Bercow: Order. If the remaining speakers on my list speak for a little short of four minutes, Mr Thomson would also have a chance. I appeal to your natural generosity of spirit. I call Mr Alex Shelbrooke.
John Bercow: I am afraid that a four-minute limit on Back-Bench speeches now applies.
John Bercow: May I gently say that the time limit will have to be reduced for subsequent speakers at this rate? I say that not by way of complaint, but as a piece of information to the House.
John Bercow: Order.
John Bercow: I am grateful to the hon. Gentleman for his clarification and for his characteristic courtesy in setting the record straight through the device of a point of order, and it has been noted by the House.
