Pension Equality for Women (14 Dec 2017)

Pension Equality for Women (14 Dec 2017)

Eleanor Laing: Order. Before I call the hon. Member for Waveney (Peter Aldous) to begin his speech, let us make it very clear that we do not have cheering and clapping in any parts of this Chamber. We do have, “Hear, hear” and we do have smiles and laughs, but we do not have cheering and clapping.

Pension Equality for Women (14 Dec 2017)

Eleanor Laing: Order. Before the hon. Gentleman responds to that intervention, I must make it clear that I am making no criticism of him. He is making a very genuine speech and has a great many points to cover, and he has taken a lot of interventions. I do, however, criticise those people who have made interventions but are not remaining in the Chamber for the rest of the debate. The convention is that the...

Pension Equality for Women (14 Dec 2017)

Eleanor Laing: Order. As I have indicated, a great many people wish to speak, so we will have to start with a time limit of six minutes.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Implementing the withdrawal agreement (13 Dec 2017)

Eleanor Laing: That is not a point of order.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Implementing the withdrawal agreement (13 Dec 2017)

Eleanor Laing: The right hon. Lady knows that that is not a point of order. It is a point of debate. The hon. Member for Harwich and North Essex (Mr Jenkin) is about to conclude his speech, and the more that other hon. Members shout at him and interrupt him, the less chance other Members will have to speak.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Implementing the withdrawal agreement (13 Dec 2017)

Eleanor Laing: Order. Now that the Minister has spoken and taken a great many interventions, many of the issues before us have been fully discussed. I appreciate there are a lot more amendments to be spoken to, but the Committee will know that a lot of people have just risen to indicate that they wish to speak, and we have less than an hour and a half left. I cannot impose a time limit in Committee, but if...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Implementing the withdrawal agreement (13 Dec 2017)

Eleanor Laing: Order. The hon. Member for Rhondda (Chris Bryant) knows better—and he also knows better than to raise his eyebrows because I have called for order. He does it often enough, and it is not his job.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Implementing the withdrawal agreement (13 Dec 2017)

Eleanor Laing: Order. [Interruption.] Order. The hon. Member for Aberavon (Stephen Kinnock) should not have been shouting in the first place, and he definitely should not have been shouting over me as I called for order. We are having a very detailed discussion here, which does not lend itself to shouting from Members on one Bench or the other.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Regulations to deal with deficiencies arising from withdrawal - Independent Report (12 Dec 2017)

Eleanor Laing: Order. If the hon. Gentleman is out of order, I will tell him that he is out of order. Does he wish to convince me that it is in order to speak about this particular matter?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Regulations to deal with deficiencies arising from withdrawal - Independent Report (12 Dec 2017)

Eleanor Laing: With this it will be convenient to consider the following: New clause 24—Scope of delegated powers— “Subject to sections 8 and 9 and paragraphs 13 and 21 of Schedule 2, any power to make, confirm or approve subordinate legislation conferred or modified under this Act and its Schedules must be used, and may only be used, insofar as is necessary to ensure that retained EU law...

Finance (No. 2) Bill (11 Dec 2017)

Eleanor Laing: Order. I do not like to interrupt the hon. Gentleman, and I let him do this earlier, but if he faces away from the Chair, no one can hear him. I certainly cannot hear him. He has to speak to the Chair, and not to the Member upon whom he is intervening. But I am sorry—I interrupted him, so I will allow him to finish his intervention.

Finance (No. 2) Bill (11 Dec 2017)

Eleanor Laing: Order. Before we proceed, let me enlighten those Members who might not be aware that, because this is a Finance Bill, the debate may continue “until any hour”, as they will see on the Order Paper. There is no limit on today’s debate. Approximately 18 people have indicated to me that they wish to speak, and if they each take about 15 minutes, they will be able to calculate...

Finance (No. 2) Bill (11 Dec 2017)

Eleanor Laing: Order.

Finance (No. 2) Bill (11 Dec 2017)

Eleanor Laing: I am very pleased that the hon. Gentleman—from a sedentary position, which he is not allowed to do—has apologised. If the Minister was making an intervention that was too long, I would stop him so doing. I have allowed the hon. Gentleman and several other Members to make fairly long interventions because I thought we were having a meaningful debate, but we will not have shouting...

Finance (No. 2) Bill (11 Dec 2017)

Eleanor Laing: Order. The hon. Gentleman is not giving way.
