HC Deb 30 November 1972 vol 847 c625
Mr. Speaker

Mr. McNair-Wilson.

Mr. Michael McNair-Wilson

I am grateful to you, Mr. Speaker, for calling me on this point of order. It relates to my Question No. 40 to the Minister of State for Defence. It is the only Question I put down to him. I tabled it this week, and I am wondering why it came after the second Question of many other hon. Members, as I thought that the rule was that first Questions came first.

Mr. Speaker

I think that probably the answer relates to the time at which the hon. Member put down his Question, but I will look into the matter.

Mr. Winterton

On a point of order, Mr. Speaker. Owing to the highly unsatisfactory and highly discourteous reply to my Question No. 14 by my hon. Friend, I give notice—

Mr. Speaker

Order. The hon. Member cannot do that now.
