Rosie Winterton: We now come to the programme motion. I must inform the House that paragraph 5 of the motion on the Order Paper should refer to Third Reading being brought to a conclusion three hours after the commencement of proceedings on consideration, not on Third Reading.
Rosie Winterton: I call Michelle Donelan.
Rosie Winterton: I call Chris Stephens.
Rosie Winterton: The hon. Gentleman has done exactly the right thing by clarifying that as quickly as possible and putting the record straight.
Rosie Winterton: That is not a point of order. The hon. Gentleman will continue his speech.
Rosie Winterton: Order. Can we calm it down, please? I am sure that the hon. Gentleman is returning to the Bill.
Rosie Winterton: Order. Because there have been quite a lot of interventions, I now have to reduce the time limit to six minutes. I am sorry. Hon. Members should bear it in mind, however, that even that will be tight.
Rosie Winterton: I thank the hon. Gentleman for giving me notice that he wished to raise this matter. It is obviously unsatisfactory that he has had to wait for such a long time to receive a response, but I am sure his concern has been heard on the Treasury Bench and will be conveyed to the Home Office.
Rosie Winterton: Thank you. Meanwhile, the hon. Member for Edinburgh East (Tommy Sheppard) has obviously made his dissatisfaction clear, and it is now on the record.
Rosie Winterton: We now come to the general debate on European affairs. The theme of today’s debate is international trade.
Rosie Winterton: I call Anna Soubry.
Rosie Winterton: Oh, I am sorry. I meant to call the Secretary of State.
Rosie Winterton: I call Anna Soubry.
Rosie Winterton: A perfect ending.
Rosie Winterton: Order. Again, can we listen to the Secretary of State? It is fine if she wants to take interventions and she has indicated that she will take some more, but I do think that hon. Members should be a bit calmer.
Rosie Winterton: With this it will be convenient to discuss the following motions: That an humble Address be presented to Her Majesty, praying that the Free School Lunches and Milk, and School and Early Years Finance (Amendments Relating to Universal Credit) (England) Regulations 2018 (S.I., 2018, No. 148), dated 6 February, a copy of which was laid before this House on 7 February, be annulled. That an...
Rosie Winterton: Order. This is an extremely important and very serious debate. The hon. Lady has taken a lot of interventions. When she takes interventions, there is no point in just shouting at her; it is important to listen to her answer. The same will go for when the Secretary of State is speaking.
Rosie Winterton: We now come to the four motions on universal credit, children and young persons and social security, which will be debated together. I must inform the House that the Speaker has certified the two motions on children and young persons as relating exclusively to England, and as falling within devolved legislative competence. The motions relating to those statutory instruments are therefore...
Rosie Winterton: I thank the hon. Member for giving me notice of his intention to raise this issue on behalf of the Foreign Affairs Committee. It is certainly unsatisfactory that the Government have not replied to the Committee’s report, if indeed it was published a year ago. It is understandable that there is sometimes a delay during an election period—it should normally be two months—but...
Rosie Winterton: The hon. Lady has made very clear what she feels about the remarks that were made. The Bill will return to the House, and I suggest that she continue to express her view then. I am sure that she will do so and that the Labour Front-Bench team will do so as well.
