HC Deb 07 November 1950 vol 480 c771
Mr. Osborne

On a point of order. May I, with great respect, Mr. Speaker, ask your guidance? We have only reached Question 50, and the Questions to the Chancellor of the Exchequer have not been reached at all. He is second on the list on Tuesdays and third on Thursdays. Can you use your influence with the Ministries to see that we have shorter replies, so that Questions to the Chancellor of the Exchequer can be reached, in view of the importance of Exchequer Questions?

Mr. Speaker

That is not a point of order. It has nothing to do with me. All that I can do is to point out, once again, that we can have lots of Questions and very few supplementaries or very few Questions and lots of supplementaries. There is no getting round that.
