§ Captain WEDGWOOD BENN
On a point of Order. The House has passed a Resolution which precludes it from considering any Private Members' Bills. Does that prevent an hon. Member from presenting a Bill, though we know it cannot possibly be considered by the House? May an hon. Member present a Bill on the assumption that the Government may presumably take it up?
Any hon. Member at all times may present a Bill, though hon. Members must often know that there is little chance of the Bill being proceeded with.
§ Captain BENN
On that point of Order. Might I submit that the circumstances of this Session are peculiar. The House has passed a Resolution that no Private Member's Bill may even be considered.
