Nadine Dorries: Mr Vaizey—40 seconds. Sorry.
Nadine Dorries: Order.
Nadine Dorries: Order. I call Dr Lisa Cameron.
Nadine Dorries: Only if you are going to read them.
Nadine Dorries: Order. Let me do a quick headcount of Members who wish to speak in the debate. Nine Back Benchers have indicated a wish to speak. The maths dictates that I will have to call the Front Benchers at 6.22 pm. The debate must finish no later than 6.42 pm, because of all the Divisions we have had. I will therefore have to impose a three-minute time limit on speeches. If there are too many...
Nadine Dorries: I apologise for intervening so soon after arriving in the Chamber. Does my right hon. Friend not agree that most of these issues will be taken care of in the great repeal Bill anyway?
Nadine Dorries: Order. Absolutely not. Mr MacNeil, if you wish to intervene in a debate, you should arrive at the beginning, not halfway through in order to do nothing other than make an intervention on behalf of the gallery. I am not allowing it.
Nadine Dorries: No, absolutely not.
Nadine Dorries: Before I call the Minister, I ask him to please leave a few minutes at the end for Mr Foster to wind up the debate. That would be much appreciated.
Nadine Dorries: Order. Mr Jones, may I just say that two other people are waiting to speak, and we will not be able to get them in if you do not wind up soon?
Nadine Dorries: Not a speech—an intervention.
Nadine Dorries: I understand that point, which may be applicable to post office facilities housed in buildings that are appropriate for the extra business. In Ampthill, however, that is not the case. As I said, this lunchtime I was told by someone in Ampthill that the post office there struggles to find staff and is in small premises, which are very cramped—just try buying a stamp there at any busy...
Nadine Dorries: I thank the Minister for his forbearance. I have had a similar promise in writing from NatWest, but when it is asked to give that promise at public meetings, it gives no such assurance to the local community. It is good that he said that on the record. I, too, have said it, but NatWest is not doing that in local meetings.
Nadine Dorries: I beg to move, That this House has considered the provision of local banking facilities in Ampthill. It is a great pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Gray. I am usually in that Chair myself; I had forgotten what it is like to be on this side. In December, my office received an embargoed early notice from NatWest saying that it would shortly be announcing the closure of several of...
Nadine Dorries: On a point of order, Mr Hoyle. The Scottish National party has now been here for almost two years. That is sufficient time to have learned some of the manners and the protocol of the Chamber, which includes referring to Members by their—
Nadine Dorries: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?
Nadine Dorries: Does the hon. Gentleman know exactly how much these impact assessments would cost the taxpayer?
Nadine Dorries: I am very much looking forward to voting tonight and to the debates on universities, education, immigration and the economy that will take place in the Chamber during the next two years. I truly feel that, as a result of this referendum, we as MPs and Parliament as an entity are closer to the people now than we have ever been. I believe that they will watch those debates and follow what we...
Nadine Dorries: Order. This is not a speech, Mr Lammy. It is an intervention.
Nadine Dorries: Order. Ms Jones, you may get a chance to wind up at the end.
