HC Deb 08 November 1966 vol 735 c1158

Bill to permit a circus in Royal Parks at appropriate seasons, presented accordingly and read the First time; to be read a Second time upon Friday, 3rd March and to be printed. [Bill 126.]

Mr. Jeremy Thorpe (Devon, North)

On a point of order, Mr. Speaker. Now that the House has approved that Motion, can you tell us whether it affects the Royal Prerogative, since it concerns the Royal Parks, and, if it does, whether consent has been obtained?

Mr. Speaker

The hon. Member may not be aware that that point arose in connection with a similar Bill last week. The Queen's Consent is required at a certain stage, but not at the stage of asking leave to introduce the Bill. This would have to come up at the Second Reading stage.
