Motion made, and Question proposed, That the sitting be now adjourned.[Derek Twigg.]
Mr. Michael Mates (East Hampshire):
I am happy to agree to this adjournment in the special circumstances that we are needed elsewhere. I shall raise a point of order in the Chamber after questions to try to ensure that we have a system that does not put us all in the position of having to adjourn a debate that could more easily be postponed until the important statement is over. In the circumstances, I am happy to agree with the Government's motion.
Question put and agreed to.
Adjourned accordingly at half-past Two o'clock.
