Point of Order to wish Philippa Helme well

John Howell (Henley) (Con)

On a point of order, Madam Deputy Speaker. One thing was omitted from the congratulations paid to Philippa Helme by Mr Speaker, and I take this opportunity to congratulate her on her work over the past few years as a trustee of the Industry and Parliament Trust. I happen to be the trust's deputy chairman, so it is appropriate for me to congratulate her on an enormous amount of hard work.

Madam Deputy Speaker (Dame Rosie Winterton)

I thank the hon. Gentleman for that point of order, not least because it gives me the chance to give my own thanks to Philippa. I have found her cool, calm advice, which is obviously always right, to be absolutely invaluable, and all the Deputy Speakers are so grateful for her dedicated service to the House. Philippa, we will miss you. Happy sailing.
