If for no other reason, we can all rest easy: by frequently referencing the great work done by the stepmother of my hon. Friend Duncan Baker, we have made his Sunday family gatherings that much easier.

In this tremendous debate, we have celebrated the magnificence of the RNLI’s 200 years and the extraordinary work it has done across the country. If you had been speaking in this debate, Mrs Harris, I know that you would have mentioned the fantastic work done by Mumbles lifeboat station in Swansea. I am pleased to put that on the record.

I thank my hon. Friends the Members for Torbay (Kevin Foster), for North Norfolk and for Ynys Môn (Virginia Crosbie), the hon. Members for Wirral West (Margaret Greenwood), for Reading East (Matt Rodda), for Strangford (Jim Shannon), for Glasgow South West (Chris Stephens) and for Sefton Central (Bill Esterson), and my hon. Friend the Minister for their extraordinarily kind words about an organisation that deserves far greater recognition and all the support we can give it for the next 200 years.
