Lindsay Hoyle: Order. Can I just help a little bit? We have asked Members if they can do up to eight minutes, and some people are stretching that, but the hon. Lady has just spoken and is intervening again. I know it is part of the debate, but I want to make sure that those wanting to speak at the end have not been sitting here for no reason.
Lindsay Hoyle: With a name like Lindsay, who knows? [Laughter.]
Lindsay Hoyle: Order. If we work on a 10-minute limit, but without me imposing it, everybody will get equal time.
Lindsay Hoyle: This is the Middle Level Bill!
Lindsay Hoyle: Can I just help a little? In fairness to Mr Bone, he was not here, but you do not need to explain what we have already discussed and we do not need to go back over it. I know that you were not attempting to do so—come on, Sir Christopher!
Lindsay Hoyle: Normally I would not take a point of order at this stage, but as Sir Christopher has only just cleared his throat in making his speech, I recognise that it would be frustrating for the hon. Gentleman not to get in. The matter is on the record now. I have been given no notice of a ministerial statement about the serious issue at Toys“R”Us. I do recognise that you are representing...
Lindsay Hoyle: Order. Sir Christopher, I am just waiting to see how this links in with the Bill.
Lindsay Hoyle: Order. I am more bothered that this is about the Avon canal and that particular individual, who is not actually on the Middle Level or affected by it. I understand you making a reference, but not in detail.
Lindsay Hoyle: Order. I want to make sure that everybody gets equal time. Working on the basis that we have seven people and that we have until 5.40, we should have around 10 minutes each. I think that that will be helpful to everybody.
Lindsay Hoyle: I inform the House that I have selected the amendment in the name of Sir Kevin Barron.
Lindsay Hoyle: In fairness, the hon. Member for Strangford (Jim Shannon) is always here.
Lindsay Hoyle: Order. The time limit will have to come down to three minutes. I was hoping every speaker could have given 20 or 30 seconds, but unfortunately that did not happen.
Lindsay Hoyle: Order. I was hoping that the hon. Member for North Devon (Peter Heaton-Jones) might shave a little off. If others do not follow his example, I shall be very grateful.
Lindsay Hoyle: Order. I do not really want to make the time limit three minutes, but if Members could just knock a bit off their speeches to help one another, it will get us all there.
Lindsay Hoyle: Order. I do not want to stop the debate, but I am going to have to drop the time limit to four minutes for the next speaker. The way we are going, it will have to go down to three to get everyone in. I am bothered about that, so can Members who have already spoken bear that in mind?
Lindsay Hoyle: Order. I call Sir Robert Syms. You have four minutes.
Lindsay Hoyle: Let us have the hon. and gallant Member for Aldershot (Leo Docherty).
Lindsay Hoyle: We are all friends.
Lindsay Hoyle: I call Dr Lisa Cameron to speak for up to 15 minutes.
Lindsay Hoyle: We now come to the second Select Committee statement. Robert Neill will speak on this subject for up to 10 minutes, during which no interventions may be taken, and I shall then call Members to ask him questions in the usual way. I call the Chair of the Justice Committee, Robert Neill.
