As the Leader of the House knows, and as members would all know from question time, we have allowed the photographers to shoot from the ceremonial doors. That will continue again today. That will be the last day that happens, and it's been to capture the chamber from different angles, as I've said. During question time today, the only change will be for the first five minutes or so and the last five minutes or so; two photographers will be shooting from the doors immediately behind my chair, and that will be the final set of doors that they've got. As I said, it's only the angle that's different, and you would have noticed there are some different shots of the chamber in some of the newspapers. I just wanted to say that before we got too busy, which we're about to do now.
