Lindsay Hoyle: With this it will be convenient to take Government amendment (a) in lieu of Lords amendment 1.
Lindsay Hoyle: I now have to announce the results of today’s seven deferred Divisions. The first six relate to draft European Union (Definition of Treaties) Orders. In respect of the first question relating to Armenia, the Ayes were 535 and the Noes were 3, so the Ayes have it. In respect of the second question, relating to Central America, the Ayes were 534 and the Noes were 3, so the Ayes have it....
Lindsay Hoyle: It is one-nil.
Lindsay Hoyle: Where is he?
Lindsay Hoyle: I assure the Minister that the rest of us are not—come on!
Lindsay Hoyle: With the leave of the House, we will take motions 3 and 4 together. Motion made, and Question put forthwith ( Standing Order No. 118(6)),
Lindsay Hoyle: It is part of it, and I am sure that the hon. Lady is leading on to the debate that we have had.
Lindsay Hoyle: Order. I will have to introduce a seven-minute limit on speeches. I call Kevin Foster.
Lindsay Hoyle: Order. The Minister will have to sit down.
Lindsay Hoyle: Order. I don’t care what the Minister thinks he is doing; I am just telling him what he has to do.
Lindsay Hoyle: Do you wish to speak, Minister?
Lindsay Hoyle: The matter is now on the record for it to be picked up—[Interruption.] Hot potatoes! I now have to announce the result of today’s deferred Division, which was subject to a double majority vote under Standing Order No. 83Q, in respect of the Question relating to the draft Renewables Obligation (Amendment) Order. The Ayes were 299 and the Noes were 211. In respect of the same...
Lindsay Hoyle: Order. We are not meant to use names.
Lindsay Hoyle: Can I suggest that we do up to 10 minutes, to try to give everybody equal time?
Lindsay Hoyle: Order. I just remind Members that we cannot have both people standing at the same time. Please give way to each other. Minister, are you giving way to Christine Jardine again?
Lindsay Hoyle: But more so the cream.
Lindsay Hoyle: Order. As indicated on the Order Paper, the Speaker has certified that the Bill relates exclusively to England and Wales on matters within devolved legislative competence. As the Bill has not been amended, there is no change to that certification. Copies of the certificate and the consent motion are available in the Vote Office. Under Standing Order No. 83M, a consent motion is required for...
Lindsay Hoyle: As we both know, you cannot move that motion at this stage.
Lindsay Hoyle: Mr Linden, you may wish to judge yourself as a second-class Member, but let me reassure you that I will always treat you as a first-class Member. On that basis, you will still not get your way. I remind the House that only Members representing constituencies in England and Wales may vote on the consent motion. I call the Minister to move the consent motion. Motion made, and Question proposed,...
Lindsay Hoyle: Order. Perhaps I can help. If the hon. Gentleman is suggesting that he needs an Adjournment debate, he should apply for one on allotments, because obviously we will not be discussing that as part of today’s debate.
