Rosie Winterton: Order. Mr Coyle, calm down. Moderation and good temper governs our debate. You are not showing much sign of that.
Rosie Winterton: Order. Before I call the spokesperson for the Scottish National party, colleagues will be aware that a large number of Members wish to speak, so I will have to impose a five-minute time limit immediately.
Rosie Winterton: Order. If the hon. Lady does not want to give way, it is completely up to her.
Rosie Winterton: It is absolutely up to the hon. Lady whether to take any interventions. Hon. Members really should not be interrupting speeches with points of order over and again. It is becoming a bit of a habit, and not a very healthy one.
Rosie Winterton: The Question is as on the Order Paper. I call the Secretary of State.
Rosie Winterton: That is not a point of order, it is a matter of debate. The House has heard what the hon. Gentleman had to say, and perhaps there will be opportunities for Liberal Democrats to intervene on the Minister, but I do want to move on to the Minister’s summing up.
Rosie Winterton: Order. The hon. Gentleman really must not use the word “you”, and let us not carry on with this sort of exchange.
Rosie Winterton: With this it will be convenient to consider: Clauses 2 to 8 stand part. Amendment 1, in schedule 1, page 13, line 19, after “offences” insert “other than the prosecution of members and former members of the armed forces for murder, manslaughter or culpable homicide, or for attempt of those offences, if the alleged offence was committed— (a) more than 20 years before the date of issue...
Rosie Winterton: The hon. Lady has put that on the record and I am sure everyone in here will accept it.
Rosie Winterton: The point of order should be addressed to me. I will respond again by saying that the hon. Gentleman has put what happened on the record and made it very clear. I will also say that the debate is coming to a close and other people wish to speak, so I urge Members not to have endless points of order.
Rosie Winterton: Order. Just for guidance, may I say that if colleagues can stick to about seven minutes each, we will get everyone in? The Minister is yet to speak.
Rosie Winterton: Order. This is a very well subscribed debate. Everybody can get in if people stick to six minutes; if they do not, I will have to impose a time limit, although I would rather not.
Rosie Winterton: I thank the right hon. Gentleman for giving me notice of this matter. He has put his views very clearly on the record. Of course, if the hon. Member for Harrogate and Knaresborough (Andrew Jones) feels that he has been inaccurate, it is open to him to correct the record. I suspect that there may be a difference of opinion—Members often do have different points of view—but, as I say, the...
Rosie Winterton: As I suspected, there is a difference of opinion here. No doubt, these discussions will continue, but I think that both the right hon. Gentlemen and the hon. Gentleman have put their points of view on the record, so the best thing for us to do—
Rosie Winterton: I do not think there is anything more to be said on this matter at this stage, and I would now like to move on.
Rosie Winterton: Order. I am sorry but I have to impose a five-minute time limit on speeches.
Rosie Winterton: Order. I am afraid that I will now have to put on an eight-minute time limit.
Rosie Winterton: Order. There is some pressure on time this evening, but I would prefer not to impose a time limit. If Members could stick to eight minutes, that would be very helpful.
Rosie Winterton: Order. Just a gentle reminder that if we stick to 10 minutes each, I will not have to impose a time limit. There is another debate to follow this one.
Rosie Winterton: I have now to announce the result of today’s deferred Division. In respect of the question relating to healthcare and associated professions, the Ayes were 467 and the Noes were 2, so the Ayes have it. [The Division list is published at the end of today’s debates.]
