HC Deb 17 December 1963 vol 686 cc1046-7
Mr. Speaker

Question No. 66, The Secretary of State for Air.

Sir C. Osborne

On a point of order, Mr. Speaker. May I ask for your guidance in drawing your attention to the fact that even Prime Minister's Question No. Q6 has not been reached today and that my important Question No. Q8 has been nowhere near reached? Is it possible for you, Sir, through the usual channels, to try to get Questions answered more quickly so that all the Questions to the Prime Minister may be reached?

Mr. Speaker

I have no contact for that purpose with the usual channels. Perhaps I might be allowed to say that it is much appreciated if hon. Members can make their supplementary questions short—[Hon. Members: "Hear, hear."]—and the answers, too. The present problem is to get Question No. 66 answered.
