On a point of order, Presiding Officer. With regard to the earlier debate, I seek clarification on whether in a debate when time is shortened for a ministerial statement, the time for opening and closing speeches by ministers and parties is reduced. If it is reduced, was it reduced in that debate and if not, why not?
