§ The following Question stood upon the Order Paper:
§ 45. MR. JANNER,—To ask the Minister of Agriculture if he will give an assurance that every effort is being made in this country by way of research to combat foot-and-mouth disease; and if he will ensure that his research establishments investigate methods successfully used in other countries.
§ Mr. Julian Snow
On a point of order. As my hon. Friend is not here to ask Question No. 45, and in view of the public disquiet about the information applied for in the Question, do you think, Mr. Speaker, that the Minister of Agriculture could be invited to give the answer after Question time?
§ Mr. Speaker
I have stated the rule on that point several times, which is that unless the Minister makes representations to me I cannot move in the matter.
