    Due to the short period of time I have been a member of this community. I find it difficult to make a balanced decision on this matter. Therefore, out of principle, I have abstained on this motion

    Please could be explained to the House why Ray is absent - from the official record
    Certainly - Ray has been absent because he's been revising for his International Baccalaureate exams and is or will soon be taking said exams. These exams will end on 11th or 12th May I think and he will back shortly after that point.

    Thank you Mr Deputy Speaker,

    Are you aware of any further absences of an elongated period?

    A few days ago - the state opening of Parliament. I'm not 'active', I'm here because I'm still pushing the CT to get the government access to their sub-forum.
