HC Deb 27 November 1946 vol 430 c1618
Mr. Gallacher

On a point of Order. I want to draw your attention, Mr. Speaker, to the tact that morning after morning there are over 100 Questions on the Paper. Is it not possible to get consideration of some new method of dealing with the Questions, either by starting one morning at No. 1 and the next morning at No. 20, or by starting alphabetically? Would you arrange for an inquiry of some kind with a view to finding a better method?

Mr. Speaker

That is not a matter for me but for the Leader of the House. I do my best by discouraging, as far as I can, supplementary questions. We cannot have lots of Questions and lots of supplementary questions at the same time.
