HC Deb 06 April 1955 vol 539 c1160
Mr. Rankin

On a point of order. In a Question which I submitted. I requested some information as to the future of the Renfrew maintenance base. in addition to the airport. That part has been excluded, and reappears as Question No. 36 submitted by the hon. and gallant Member for Renfrew, East (Sir G. Lloyd). is the reason for the exclusion of that part of my Question due to the fact that the Minister proposes to announce to his hon. and gallant Friend that the Renfrew maintenance base is now to be closed and transferred to London and that the Sabre-jet contract has now been secured?

Mr. Boyd-Carpenter

On that point of order, I would respectfully submit, Mr. Speaker, that the form in which the hon. Gentleman's Question appears on the Order Paper is not my responsibility. I propose, when we get to that stage, to answer the hon. Gentleman and my hon. and gallant Friend together, but this is clearly a point for you, Sir, and not for me.

Mr. Speaker

I do not know whether the hon. Member is alleging that the Question has been altered by the Table. I can only say that all the time that I have seen his Question on the Paper, it has been in its present form.
