HC Deb 04 March 1955 vol 537 cc2527-8

Order for Second Reading read.

Brigadier Terence Clarke (Portsmouth, West)


Miss Margaret Herbison (Lanarkshire, North)

On a point of order. I wonder whether you can give me some guidance on this matter, Mr. Speaker. Today, and a fortnight ago, an hon. and gallant Member who had not been in this House for very long during the whole of the day objected to this Bill, which would help 50,000 workmen. In what way am I able to have this matter considered by hon. Members of the House?

Mr. Speaker

I am afraid that after Four o'clock on a Friday no business can proceed if it is objected to. I can only suggest that the hon. Lady, if she knows the hon. and gallant Member, should speak to him about it.

Second Reading deferred till Friday next.
