HC Deb 24 July 1973 vol 860 c1420
Mr. Faulds

On a point of order, Mr. Speaker. May I seek your guidance on a matter involving gross discourtesy? I put down yesterday for answer a Written Question about the imposition of museum charges. Today I have had a reply referring to a Question, which my own Question pre-dated, tabled by the hon. Member for Bristol, West (Mr. Robert Cooke). Is there any step that I can take to rectify this gross discourtesy? If the Government intend to press ahead with the imposition of these ridiculous charges on 1st January 1974, why have they not the guts to say so in this House?

Mr. Speaker

The hon. Member for Smethwick (Mr. Faulds) has raised a point—it is not necessarily a point of order. Nevertheless, he has made his point. I hope that those concerned will have regard to what he said and will consider it.
