To question or not to question

I cannot, hand on heart, say that Women's Questions is the highlight of the parliamentary month and it is very frustrating that we seem to go over the same few questions month after month. Ten minutes is not very long and we usually only deal with two or three questions. Today I wanted to go on question number three which is about the pay gap and there was a question I particularly wanted to ask. The law of sod meant that we ran out of time which was very frustrating but at least the speaker took pity on me and called me early in business questions so it wasn't an entirely wasted spell in the Chamber.
