I thank my hon. Friend for his comments, and I agree that it is important for Government to act as fast as possible. However, in this particular case I made it very clear to Ofcom and the OFT that they should take as long as they needed to come to the right recommendation for me to consider. I gave them as long as they needed, but they have worked to a very tight deadline and been able to ensure a much quicker turnaround than is normally the case.

The three speeches/headings immediately before

  1. 1 earlier: Jacob Rees-Mogg

    May I indicate a family interest, although not a personal one?

    I congratulate the Secretary of State on his excellent statement. It is tremendously important that business is allowed to get decisions quickly, so that it can carry on. He has ensured that the pace of government has run at the pace of business, which is hugely to be welcomed.

  2. 2 earlier: John Bercow

    Order. I gently remind the House that right hon. and hon. Members who came into the Chamber after the start of the statement should not expect to be called. That is a long-established tradition of the House.

  1. Have a quick scan of the speech under the video, then press “Play”.
  2. When you hear the start of that speech, press “Now!”.
  3. The timestamped video will then appear on TheyWorkForYou – thanks from everyone who uses the site :)

Some videos will be miles out – if you can't find the right point, don't worry, just try another speech!

  • Sign in if you want to get on the Top Timestampers league table!
  • If the video suddenly jumps a couple of hours, or otherwise appears broken, let us know.
  • If the speech you're looking for is beyond the end of the video, move on to the next video chunk.
  • If you're right at the start of a day, it's quite possible the start of the video will be the end of the previous programme on BBC Parliament, skip ahead some minutes to check :)
  • Hansard is not a verbatim transcript, so spoken words might differ slightly from the printed version. And a small note – if the speech you are looking out for is an oral question (questions asked in the first hour or so of Monday–Thursdays in the Commons), then all the MP will actually say is their question number, e.g. “Number Two”.
  • The skip buttons move in 30 second increments (you can go back before the start point), and you can access a slider by hovering over the video.
