Orders of the Day — New Clause 6 — Annual reports: parliamentary approval — 16 Jun 2006 at 12:45

I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time.

It gives me great pleasure to move new clause 6 in this important debate. I hope, Mr. Deputy Speaker, that you will give me a chance to say a few words, because it is the first time that I have spoken on a Friday since the death of my dear friend, the late Eric Forth. I hope that you will forgive me if I join hon. Friends and other hon. Members who have paid tribute to him. They say that imitation is the best form of flattery, but I am conscious that I could never imitate the way in which my late right hon. Friend scrutinised Bills so effectively on a Friday.

Question put, That the clause be read a Second time:-

The House divided: Ayes 8, Noes 93.
