Public Bill Committee: Hunting Bill: Clause 6 - Deer (11 Feb 2003)

Mr George Stevenson: Order. I have tried to guide the Committee away from interventions—particularly sedentary ones—in which words such as the one that I think I just heard are used. We should refrain from that.

Public Bill Committee: Hunting Bill: Clause 6 - Deer (11 Feb 2003)

Public Bill Committee: Hunting Bill: Clause 6 - Deer (11 Feb 2003)

Mr George Stevenson: I try my best to listen carefully to every contribution. I honestly did not hear those words. If I had heard them, I would have taken the necessary firm action. Can we please have less pickiness from Members when other hon. Members are making contributions?

Public Bill Committee: Hunting Bill: Clause 5 - Hunting: defence (11 Feb 2003)

Mr George Stevenson: Order. As patient as I am, my patience is running a little thin with some of the picky contributions and interventions. I do not think that they assist the debate at all. I urge hon. Members to control their enthusiasms rather more than they have heretofore.

Public Bill Committee: Hunting Bill: Clause 5 - Hunting: defence (11 Feb 2003)

Mr George Stevenson: Order. I hesitate to say this, but it seems to me that in the course of controversial and heated debate, which this Bill of necessity will engender, there are bound to be misinterpretations and different interpretations. That is the essence of debate. I am trying to get hon. Members to understand that we must not react to different interpretations, as part of that debate, as seems...

Public Bill Committee: Hunting Bill: Clause 4 - HUNTING: ASSISTANCE (11 Feb 2003)

Mr George Stevenson: Order. I suspect two things. First, we are drifting into a debate that we had a few days ago. The point about the effect that the Bill may have on landowners, tenants or whoever it may be has been well made. We should now move to the wording of the amendment.

Public Bill Committee: Hunting Bill: Clause 4 - HUNTING: ASSISTANCE (11 Feb 2003)

Public Bill Committee: Hunting Bill: Schedule 1 - Exempt Hunting (6 Feb 2003)

Mr George Stevenson: I am grateful for the hon. Gentleman's assistance. I have been checking clause 6 and it would be easy for him to wander on to that subject. As yet, he has been very disciplined and has not done so, for which I am extremely grateful.

Public Bill Committee: Hunting Bill: Schedule 1 - Exempt Hunting (6 Feb 2003)

Public Bill Committee: Hunting Bill: Schedule 1 - Exempt Hunting (6 Feb 2003)

Mr George Stevenson: Order. Within order, hon. Members can argue as vigorously as they like about the comments and arguments that are put forward. Ribald laughter does not, however, help anybody. [Interruption.] There are times when we all have to bite our tongues.

Public Bill Committee: Hunting Bill: Schedule 1 - Exempt Hunting (6 Feb 2003)

Mr George Stevenson: Order. The Chair must be able to hear what the hon. Gentleman is trying to say.

Public Bill Committee: Hunting Bill: Schedule 1 - Exempt Hunting (6 Feb 2003)

Mr George Stevenson: That is interesting, because I was advised that it had been turned off. I am sure that the Clerk will ensure that it is turned off. That would be extremely helpful. The point made by the hon. and learned Member for Harborough (Mr. Garnier) about Portcullis house is being heard as we speak. We will move every muscle to try to get better accommodation.

Public Bill Committee: Hunting Bill: Schedule 1 - Exempt Hunting (6 Feb 2003)

Mr George Stevenson: With this it will be convenient to discuss the following: Amendment No. 344, in schedule 1, page 23, line 11, leave out 'diseased or' and insert 'seriously'. Amendment No. 55, in schedule 1, page 23, line 13, after 'mammal's', insert 'starvation or'. Amendment No. 345, in schedule 1, page 23, line 13, leave out 'its disease' and insert 'the wild mammal'. Amendment No. 56, in schedule...

Public Bill Committee: Hunting Bill: Schedule 1 - Exempt Hunting (6 Feb 2003)

Mr George Stevenson: Order. I try as diligently as I can to follow hon. Members' contributions, but I am finding it increasingly difficult to do so because of interventions. I would like to hear the hon. Gentleman develop his arguments.
