My Lords, proceedings will now commence. Some Members are here in the Chamber and others are participating virtually, but all Members will be treated equally. For noble Lords participating virtually, microphones will unmute shortly before they are due to speak. Please accept any on-screen prompts to unmute. Microphones will be muted after each speech. If the capacity of the Chamber is exceeded—which I doubt—I will immediately adjourn the House. I ask noble Lords to be patient if there are any short delays between physical and remote participants. The usual rules and courtesies in debate apply.
We now come to the Motion in the name of the noble Baroness, Lady Vere of Norbiton. The time limit is one and a half hours.
