HC Deb 23 May 1950 vol 475 c1854
Mr. Porter

Mr. Speaker, would I be in order in calling your attention to the fact that in the OFFICIAL REPORT today the hon. Member for Oldham, West (Mr. Leslie Hale) has lost his record for fast speaking? The hon. Member for Bridgwater (Mr. Wills) made a speech yesterday which has taken three and half columns to record, and he did so in one minute. He started at 7.12 p.m. and, according to the OFFICIAL REPORT, he finished at 7.13 p.m.

Mr. Speaker

I have had no notice of this. I do not know what the hon. Member is talking about. I should have had notice.
