HC Deb 13 June 1972 vol 838 c1258
Mr. Carter-Jones

On a point of order. [Interruption.] I have never raised a point of order in the House before. This morning there was a report on the radio about a Department of Health and Social Security report on rehabilitation. It is a very important report, and Members on both sides should have had access to it, particularly as the Department was answering Questions today. I am indebted to the Under-secretary of State and the House of Commons Library for obtaining some information for me on the report. But is it not a reflection on communications in the House that hon. Members on both sides who need the information are denied it on the very day when the report should have been discussed at Question Time?

Mr. Speaker

I am grateful to the hon. Gentleman for having given me notice that he would raise this point of order. I am informed that the report is not a parliamentary paper, and, therefore, the matter is not for me. I am certain the Minister will have noted the hon. Gentleman's point, but it is not a matter of order.
