When Members secure a debate, they always worry about whether they will fill the time, so it is great that this has been one of those debates that could have filled twice as much time. It is hard to pick out any particular contributions, but what Andrea Jenkyns said was particularly compelling and, as the Minister said, the contributions from my hon. Friend Justin Madders and Jonathan Edwards about the impact on families were also powerful. We will take the Minister up on her generous offer. Thank you.

Question put and agreed to.

Resolved,

That this House
has considered the recognition of fibromyalgia as a disability.
