HC Deb 25 October 1972 vol 843 cc1191-2
Mr. Dalyell

On a point of order. It will be within your recollection, Mr. Speaker, that, in answer to questions by the hon. Member for the Isle of Ely (Sir H. Legge-Bourke), my hon. Friend the Member for Ebbw Vale (Mr. Michael Foot) and myself, the Leader of the House indicated that he agreed that there was an important point of significance and principle perhaps involved in the question of the Docksey Report being made available to certain hon. Members and not to others. Therefore, may I ask the Leader of the House, through you, Mr. Speaker, whether he would care to give an oral answer to Question No. 39?

Mr. Speaker

That is not a matter of order. I have had no such request.

The Secretary of State for the Home Department, Lord President of the Council and Leader of the House of Commons (Mr. Robert Carr)

Perhaps it would be convenient if I were to say that I am not yet in a position to give the results of my consideration, which I promised only, I think, during business questions last Thursday, but I will do so at the earliest possible moment.
