HC Deb 11 July 1940 vol 362 c1348
Sir Henry Morris-Jones

May I ask you, Mr. Speaker, or the Leader of the House, a question concerning the access of Members to this House? On Saturday last it was stated in the public Press that the Regional Commissioners in this country had instructions under which they could close all the roads in their areas to private motorists, and I want to know in what way the Members of this House can demand access to this House as a right in any region where they may be in the event of roads being closed to private motorists. I wish to ask, further, whether we are to be provided forthwith with a proper pass, duly endorsed, a pass which can be recognised throughout the country, and not the sort of pass we are provided with now, which is no pass at all.

Mr. Speaker

The hon. Member will find that there is a Question on the same subject on the Order Paper to-day which has been postponed till next Tuesday.

Sir H. Morris-Jones

May I ask, then, what is to happen to a Member of this House if during this coming week-end the regulations are in force? How am I, for instance, to gain access to this House without a proper pass?
