Lindsay Hoyle: I call Thangam Debbonaire.
Lindsay Hoyle: I think colleagues have suggested that Mr Doughty come last, so thank you for that. I call Stephen Doughty.
Lindsay Hoyle: Can I just say thank you very much for all the kind words and kind comments—it is much appreciated and I do take it on board. To be quite honest, just to add to the pizza story, I tripped over the boxes and there was none left whatsoever.
Lindsay Hoyle: Order. Lots of Members want to get in. We need short and accurate answers.
Lindsay Hoyle: Order. Can I just say that it is not fair to keep going? I am sure there will be a written question to which there will definitely be an answer.
Lindsay Hoyle: I call Melanie Onn.
Lindsay Hoyle: I think the answer might be that the hon. Gentleman could reply in writing, when he reads the record.
Lindsay Hoyle: Order. We need to stick to the money resolution, as you should know better than anyone, Sir Roger. I want to get on with this, so please can we deal with what is in hand? I do not expect the Minister to be driven off course.
Lindsay Hoyle: I think the hon. Gentleman actually knew the answer.
Lindsay Hoyle: Order. We are drifting.
Lindsay Hoyle: Some might suggest a filibuster, but do carry on.
Lindsay Hoyle: Order. You are drifting. Get on with it—come on.
Lindsay Hoyle: Order. We are not here to discuss accolades. We are going to discuss the Bill.
Lindsay Hoyle: I inform the House that Mr Speaker has selected the amendment in the name of the Leader of the Opposition.
Lindsay Hoyle: Order. The Minister has now taken up 50% of the time. It is only an hour’s debate, so I am concerned. We have a lot of Members in the Chamber, and I hope that he is not trying to take up all the time.
Lindsay Hoyle: Order. The debate is not about business rates.
Lindsay Hoyle: I know. I have allowed Members to generalise. I do not want to narrow down what the shadow Minister has to say. I allowed the Minister to spread his wings—perhaps I was a bit too open in allowing that. I do not want to concentrate on just one area.
Lindsay Hoyle: You also should not test ours. [Laughter.]
Lindsay Hoyle: Or not.
Lindsay Hoyle: I must draw the House’s attention to the fact that financial privilege is involved in the Lords amendment. If the House agrees to it, I will cause an appropriate entry to be made in the Journal. I must also inform the House that Mr Speaker has certified that the amendment relates exclusively to England. If there is a Division, it will be subject to a double majority. Clause 2
