I thank all right hon. and hon. Members for their contributions. I thank in particular Bob Stewart. It comes as no surprise to me that he is a compassionate person. I also thank the shadow Minister, and the Minister for his positive response.

I finish with a Scripture text. Psalm 118: 13-14 says:

“I was pushed back so hard I was falling, but the Lord helped me. The Lord is my strength and my defence;
he has become my salvation.”

Today was a chance for this House to shine; a voice for the voiceless.
