On a point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker. You will be aware that today is the last sitting day before Mr. Laurence Kaye, who has served for 26 years in the Table Office and for more than 40 years in the service of the House, retires. Through you, Mr. Deputy Speaker, I wish to thank my constituent for all the service that he has given to all of us in the House. I thank also the Members of the House, over half of whom have signed early-day motion 954, thanking Mr. Kaye for his service and wishing him a happy retirement.

Obviously, that is not a point of order for the Chair. However, the House has heard the hon. Gentleman's kind words and they are now a matter of record for the House.
