HC Deb 12 May 1924 vol 173 c1005

I desire to raise a question affecting the privileges of this House. I think that Members in all parts of the House are justly jealous of any attack which may be made on any of its Members. The ordinary give-and-take of party politics, and matters of that sort, we are all prepared to take our share of, but I desire to call attention at the earliest opportunity to a leading article which appeared in the "Daily Herald" of Saturday last. The article deals with the affairs of one of the Standing Committees upstairs, and so far as the arguments used in the article deal wish the particular views—

Mr. DEPUTY-SPEAKER (Mr. Entwistle)

I think the hon Member had bettor wait until Mr. Speaker is in the Chair, if he is raising a question of privilege. Mr. Speaker will shortly be here.
