HC Deb 26 June 1956 vol 555 cc266-7
Mr. Parkin

On a point of order. I desire to raise with you, Mr. Speaker, a matter which obviously calls for your intervention and action. On page 4453 of the Notices of Motions and Orders of the Day, which were delivered to hon. Members this morning, there appears a Question, provisionally numbered 64, in the name of the right hon. Member for Ipswich (Mr. Stokes).

This Question, as printed, contains an implication of the most alarming constitutional nature, involving, indeed, a matter of Privilege. I apologise for the fact that I did not notice it myself until you were in the Chair and so was unable to give you notice of this point of order. Perhaps, after you have studied this Question, you will be able to decide whether it is the right hon. Member for Ipswich, the Clerk of the House, or the Printer, who ought to be sent to the Clock Tower.

Mr. Speaker

This matter is meaningless to me at the moment as I do not know the Question which is being referred to, but I will look into it, of course.
