It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Bone. I congratulate Christine Jardine on securing the debate and on a fantastic opening speech. I also want to express my disappointment that Mr Vaizey is not in the Cabinet. He was overlooked on several occasions by Prime Ministers and, as we heard in his speech, he speaks from a position of experience and understanding of the industry. I think I speak for a lot of people who said they felt they had a friend when he was the Minister. I also want to congratulate Pete Wishart, who is one half of the famous parliamentary rock band MP4: a classic line-up for a passionate speech. Once MP4 decide to go on that long awaited British tour, we look forward to welcoming them to Blackwood Institute and Newbridge Memo and one of the larger venues that we can book.
