Lindsay Hoyle: There might already be one or two Acts with that name. Question put and agreed to. Bill accordingly read the Third time and passed.
Lindsay Hoyle: Order. I just say to Members that they have six minutes each.
Lindsay Hoyle: I suggest that we work on the basis of 15 minutes for opening speeches and 10 minutes for speeches thereafter.
Lindsay Hoyle: The Leader of the House has tabled a motion on the matter of privilege, which Mr Speaker has agreed should take precedence today. I call the Leader of the House to move the motion.
Lindsay Hoyle: May I just advise the hon. Gentleman that the Bill is not a personal attack on the Mayor of London? [Interruption.] I am sorry; did the hon. Member for Spelthorne (Kwasi Kwarteng) say something?
Lindsay Hoyle: I thank you for that, because otherwise I would have something to say and that would not be helpful to you. I am just trying to be constructive. We are on Second Reading of a Bill, and I am allowing latitude, but Members must focus on the Bill.
Lindsay Hoyle: The hon. Member for Spelthorne is helping out again. Let me just reassure you: the Bill is about knife crime, and not about other issues. As much as you think you are getting good advice from the hon. Gentleman, I would take your advice from the Chair.
Lindsay Hoyle: I want to move the Bill on, and I want to ensure that we do not need to have a time limit. Please, let us carry on.
Lindsay Hoyle: Crime figures will do fine.
Lindsay Hoyle: Mr Hughes, you are very close to the top of the list. I am sure you do not want to go down the list. I know that Mr Hayes is about to finish his speech. Come on, Mr Hayes.
Lindsay Hoyle: With this we may take Lords amendments 2 to 32.
Lindsay Hoyle: Order. May I suggest a speaking time limit of four minutes? I call Marcus Fysh.
Lindsay Hoyle: I call John McDonnell. The time limit will go down to six minutes after John McDonnell.
Lindsay Hoyle: Order. I call Greg Hands to speak, with an eight-minute limit.
Lindsay Hoyle: Order. I am not going to stop interventions being made, but they must be short if we are to get through all the speakers.
Lindsay Hoyle: Order. Before I call Andy McDonald, I warn Members that we will start with an eight-minute limit but it will soon drop to five minutes.
Lindsay Hoyle: I am awaiting good news.
Lindsay Hoyle: Order. The hon. Gentleman has already used his 15 minutes. I want him to get to the end of his speech, but if he keeps taking interventions, we will not get there. We do have other speakers who wish to contribute, so I am sure that he will want to get to the end quickly.
Lindsay Hoyle: Order. I advise Members to speak for up to about eight minutes each.
Lindsay Hoyle: Order. There seems to be a bit of concern—every Member who is here was here when I came into the Chair. [Interruption.] Let us leave it to the Chair to decide whether interventions can be made.
