Lindsay Hoyle: Order. I will now drop the time limit to four minutes to ensure that everybody gets in. It is the interventions that are killing it.
Lindsay Hoyle: Order. The hon. Lady can ask to intervene, but she cannot remain on her feet.
Lindsay Hoyle: Order. The letter is becoming quite contentious. I am sure that it can be passed to the Minister.
Lindsay Hoyle: Order! Too long; far too long.
Lindsay Hoyle: Order. Just to help the situation, I will drop the speaking limit to five minutes because of the number of interventions. If people continue to intervene, which I do not want to stop, they must understand that they will go to the bottom of the list in order to ensure that those who have not spoken get their chance. That includes you, Helen Goodman.
Lindsay Hoyle: Order. We have a lot of speakers and, as Members are well aware, there is no knife today. I will not be setting a time limit, so in order to get to the second debate I suggest that Members use up to eight minutes, including interventions.
Lindsay Hoyle: Here’s to Luke. Question put and agreed to. House adjourned.
Lindsay Hoyle: Before I call the Minister, I inform the House that he is not feeling well today and, for the sake of clarification, that another Minister will come along later.
Lindsay Hoyle: Order. We do not need everybody standing up at the same time. I am sure that if the right hon. Gentleman is going to give way, as he has already done, he will say so. Please, do not all keep standing up at the same time.
Lindsay Hoyle: That includes Mr Farrelly, who has already had a good start to the day. Let us not continue in the same way.
Lindsay Hoyle: With this it will be convenient to discuss amendment 79, in clause 1, page 1, line 3, at end insert— “(2) Regulations under section 19(2) bringing into force subsection (1) may not be made until the Prime Minister is satisfied that resolutions have been passed by the Scottish Parliament, the National Assembly for Wales and the Northern Ireland...
Lindsay Hoyle: May I first draw the attention of the House to a mistake on page 1 of the amendment paper? The name of the hon. Member for Keighley (John Grogan) should not have appeared as a supporter of new clause 49.
Lindsay Hoyle: Let us not worry too much about time because we are eating away at it at the moment. It is a matter to be decided in the debate, not for me to decide. When we get there, we will know better. Let us not take up more time now.
Lindsay Hoyle: Let us hear from the north-west champion, Justin Madders.
Lindsay Hoyle: At least you now know where you need to be.
Lindsay Hoyle: Points of order would normally come after statements, but I will use the Chair’s discretion and take the hon. Gentleman’s.
Lindsay Hoyle: I think Mr Bryant needs a new copy—his must be so well thumbed.
Lindsay Hoyle: Order. I am struggling to hear the right hon. Gentleman, and I am sure that everybody wants to listen to every word he has to tell the Chamber.
Lindsay Hoyle: That is not a point of order. I call John Redwood.
Lindsay Hoyle: The answer is that it is for the Government, not for me, to respond on that point. There has been a question about whether this is binding. What is binding is the need to carry forward the debate. Let us have no more ado.
