I remind hon. Members that there have been some changes to normal practices to support the hybrid arrangements. Timings of debates have been amended to allow technical arrangements to be made for the next debate, and there will also be suspensions between each debate. I remind Members participating physically and virtually that they must arrive for the start of the debates in Westminster Hall, although I am aware that two Members have been detained in another debate. Members are expected to remain for the entire debate.

I remind Members participating virtually that they must leave their cameras on for the duration of the debate, and that they will be visible at all times—both to each other and to us in the Boothroyd Room. If Members attending virtually have any technical problems, they should email the Westminster Hall Clerks. Members attending physically should clean their spaces before they use them and before they leave the room.

I remind Members that Mr Speaker has stated that masks should be worn in Westminster Hall unless you are speaking. Members attending physically who are in the later stages of the call list should use seats in the Public Gallery at the end of the room and move into the horseshoe when seats become available.

Members can speak only from where there are microphones. Members who are not on the call list but who wish to intervene can only do so from the horseshoe, and I remind Members that those on the call list have priority for spaces on the horseshoe. Those who wish to intervene should not prevent a Member on the call list from speaking.
