HC Deb 28 July 1964 vol 699 cc1230-1
Mr. A. Lewis

On a point of order. May I draw your attention, Mr. Speaker, to Question No. 13, addressed to the Prime Minister. You will see that this is a Question which the Prime Minister has accepted as being within his responsibility and that it is down for Answer today. In the past, the Chair has always ruled that when a Question is on the Order Paper, and is due to be answered, the Minister concerned may ask for permission to answer it. Should it not, therefore, be the Prime Minister who asks for your permission to make this statement, as he has accepted this Question?

Mr. Speaker

I received notice that the Minister of Aviation desired to make a statement.

Mr. Milne

On a point of order. I should like your guidance, Mr. Speaker, on a matter which I raised with you last night—a matter of urgent public importance relating to the activities of Fiesta Tours Ltd. I have received no reply to that request. May I have your guidance as to when I may raise this matter?

Mr. Speaker

I do not understand this except that the hon. Member sought leave to ask a Private Notice Question. I felt that I could not allow it. That is all that I can say about it.
