That the draft Broadcasting (Independent Productions) (Amendment) Order 2003, which was laid before this House on 1st May, be approved.—[Jim Fitzpatrick.]

Question agreed to.

On a point of order, Madam Deputy Speaker. May I correct slightly a statement that I made during Prime Minister's Question Time today? I was correct in saying that there had been a fivefold increase in the number of work permits, but it has happened since 1997 rather than over the past year. I welcome this opportunity to put that on the record.

I thank the hon. Gentleman for his courtesy in informing the House of that mistake.
