Lindsay Hoyle: Order. I call Louise Ellman.
Lindsay Hoyle: Order. Mr Afolami, please let us not test the patience of the House. A lot of people want to speak.
Lindsay Hoyle: Order. I have the greatest respect for the hon. Member for Macclesfield (David Rutley), but we do not normally have a Whip joining in. I am sure he will not be joining in again later. The hon. Member for Hemsworth (Jon Trickett) is giving way. Let him give way, and I am sure we can get on with the debate. What I am bothered about is that a lot of people want to speak, so please let us not...
Lindsay Hoyle: The hon. Gentleman knows that, from chairmanships in many other areas, that is not a point of order. It is up to the hon. Member for Hemsworth (Jon Trickett) whether he wishes to give way, as we will later find out when other Members want to intervene.
Lindsay Hoyle: With the leave of the House, we will take motions 7 to 9 together. Motion made, and Question put forthwith ( Standing Order No. 118(6)),
Lindsay Hoyle: Order. Before I call the next speaker, I want to suggest an informal time limit of between 10 and 12 minutes.
Lindsay Hoyle: Order. The Front Benchers have up to eight minutes each.
Lindsay Hoyle: I am going to have to drop the time limit to five minutes. If Members keep intervening it will go even lower.
Lindsay Hoyle: Order. We have a lot of people to get in and we have very limited time. Can I suggest six-minute speeches?
Lindsay Hoyle: With this it will be convenient to discuss the following: Amendment 345, in clause 8, page 6, line 32, at end insert— “(2A) Regulations under subsection (1) may, in particular, include regulations to match or exceed World Health Organisation air quality standards.” This amendment is intended to ensure that the UK continues to meet international...
Lindsay Hoyle: Order. Can I be honest? We need shorter interventions. The hon. Gentleman was hoping to get two minutes at the end of the debate; he is eating into that two minutes, and he will understand if he does not get them.
Lindsay Hoyle: Order. I should say that there is a time limit on speeches of five minutes.
Lindsay Hoyle: I think we have heard enough today, have we not? Thank you. I thank the hon. Lady for giving me notice of the point of order. She asked quite a few things. The first point is that I have been given no such notice by Ministers. The Minister for Universities, Science, Research and Innovation made a detailed written statement on the matter yesterday, as the hon. Lady said, following the...
Lindsay Hoyle: Order. I say to the Government Whip that I think I can control the Chamber. I thank him for his help, but I have already told him once that he does not need to worry. [Interruption.] Order. The Whip is well aware that he is testing my patience. I do not need any help.
Lindsay Hoyle: With this it will be convenient to discuss the following: New clause 80—Transparency of the financial settlement— ‘(1) Financial provision may be made for a financial settlement agreed as part of any withdrawal agreement under Article 50 of the Treaty of the European Union. (2) Subsection 1 applies only if the financial settlement honours obligations incurred by the United...
Lindsay Hoyle: We have 11 speakers left, with something like 20 minutes to go. It is just not going to happen if this continues.
Lindsay Hoyle: I remind everybody that there are still 12 speakers to go.
Lindsay Hoyle: Order. Mr Paisley, you know the rules on using Members’ names, and you did promise me that this was your final point. I think “Finally” is now here. You have two seconds before I call the next speaker.
Lindsay Hoyle: Order. I just point out that 15 Members still wish to speak and there is one hour to go.
Lindsay Hoyle: The hon. Lady has made a speech; we will have short interventions.
