HC Deb 07 November 1966 vol 735 cc978-9
Mr. Hector Hughes

On a point of order. I have waited until the end of Question Time to raise this point of order, Mr. Speaker. I want to draw your attention to the fact that this Question Time was peculiar in the number of bogus points of order—which you have ruled were not points of order—raised by the Opposition, thereby wasting the time of the House. I invite you to make some observation in order to have that practice discontinued.

Mr. Speaker

I am sure that Mr. Speaker is very grateful to the hon. and learned Gentleman for reinforcing the Chair, when the Chair does call attention to the raising of points of order during Question Time—points which might be taken at the end of Question Time and, even worse, points which are not points of order.
