Neil Gerrard: I shall try to be brief, because many of the issues that I wanted to discuss have been covered. This is probably the last time I will speak in the House, so I am glad to be discussing an important Bill. Most of the comments have been about file sharing and internet access, and there have been a few about orphan works. Other important aspects that most of us think worth while have also been...
Neil Gerrard: I notice the Liberal Democrats are still denying that there might be one. I am interested in their position on clause 18-having proposed it, they later decided that it was a dreadful thing and had to be opposed.

Neil Gerrard: It is obvious that we are not going to have time to give the normal scrutiny that we should to the Digital Economy Bill on Second Reading. As someone who is broadly supportive of that Bill, may I say to my right hon. and learned Friend that I am concerned that it will be rushed through-it involves some very complex issues-on the basis of a deal between Front Benchers?
