I am delighted that the Leader of the Opposition has now put that into a Motion for...
David Rutley: With the leave of the House, I will respond to the debate. Indeed, it is my pleasure and privilege to do so. I think there was one other Bill that the hon. Member for Stroud (Dr Drew) had in mind as well.
