HC Deb 05 February 1971 vol 810 cc2161-2

Order for Second Reading read.

Hon. Members


Second reading deferred till Monday next.

The Attorney-General (Sir Peter Rawlinson)

On a point of order. May I seek your guidance, Mr. Speaker? When objection is taken to Bills which are merely a consolidation of the present law and which it would be greatly to the advantage of the ordinary citizen to have passed into law, would it be possible to record that the objection comes from a particular quarter of the House?

Mr. Speaker

That is not a point of order on which I can act. I am governed by the rules of the House and, if objection is taken, I must then ask on what day the Second Reading is proposed to be taken.
