Lindsay Hoyle: May I just say that most Members of Parliament will now want to intervene on the hon. Member for Belfast East (Gavin Robinson)?
Lindsay Hoyle: I am sure that, if there is nobody else here, he definitely will.
Lindsay Hoyle: Order. I think the point has been very well made. It would not be for this Bill to change that; it would be done in other ways. It would helpful if we could try to deal with things that the Bill can deal with.
Lindsay Hoyle: It is wise to remind all Members, of whatever party, that it is courteous to let a Member know if they are visiting on political business. That is now on record, and I am sure that everyone will note it.
Lindsay Hoyle: With the leave of the House, we shall take motions 4 to 9 together. Motion made, and Question put forthwith ( Standing Order No. 9(6)),
Lindsay Hoyle: We now come to motions 11 to 21. Is there an objection?
Lindsay Hoyle: So you want me to take motion 9 separately?
Lindsay Hoyle: I am sorry. We have done motion 9. We have moved on to motions 11 to 21. I am sorry; I did say.

Lindsay Hoyle: I call Geraint Davies—you have two minutes.
Lindsay Hoyle: I have not put a time limit on; I do not want to do that.

Lindsay Hoyle: Order. People are not going to get equal time now. If we want to be fair to each other, can we do no more than nine minutes, to share out the time as best we can?
Lindsay Hoyle: Thank you very much.
Lindsay Hoyle: Will the Serjeant at Arms please investigate the blockage in the No Lobby? The House divided: Ayes 129, Noes 42.
Lindsay Hoyle: Order. Let me help. The hon. Lady has other colleagues who want to speak, and she has been speaking for probably 12 minutes. Please, we need to get other Members in as well.
Lindsay Hoyle: We won’t be able to listen to anything if hon. Members carry on for that long.
Lindsay Hoyle: May I just give a little bit of advice to both Front Benchers? The speeches are meant to be 10 and five minutes. I think one was nearly 16 and the other was seven. I did not want to stop them, because this is a very important subject, but I would like us to keep to that in future.
Lindsay Hoyle: I call the ever-patient Nic Dakin.
Lindsay Hoyle: Order. This is meant to be a quick intervention—
