HC Deb 21 August 1945 vol 413 c454

The following Members took and subscribed the Oath:

Anthony Mulvey, esquire, County of Fermanagh and Tyrone.

Patrick Cunningham, esquire. County of Fermanagh and Tyrone.

Mr. Gallacher

Can I raise a. point of Order? In the old House we had cross benches—in the days when proceedings here were enlivened by the presence of the Irish Members. In view of the fact that they have now come back, could we not get cross benches again?

Mr. Speaker

The only cross benches in the House at present are outside the Bar.

Major Guy Lloyd

How long will it be before my hon. Friend opposite deserves to sit on them?
