HC Deb 11 May 1970 vol 801 c826
Mr. Stanley R. McMaster

On a point of order—

Mr. Speaker

Order. The hon. Gentleman should have risen earlier, but I will allow him to put a point of order.

Mr. McMaster

I beg to ask leave to move the Adjournment of the House, under Standing Order No. 9, for the purpose of discussing a specific and important matter that should have urgent consideration—

Mr. Speaker

Order. I am sorry. I gave the hon. Gentleman an opportunity at the right time. I paused, and he should have raised the matter between the end of Questions and the beginning of public business.
