HC Deb 08 July 1974 vol 876 cc945-6
Mr. William Hamilton

On a point of order. Mr. Speaker. The hon. Member for Gloucester (Mrs. Oppenheim) indicated in a supplementary question on Question No. 18 that I had twice objected to the Unit Pricing Bill. That is untrue. Even if it were true the hon. Lady would not know, because she is never here on a Friday.

Mr. Cormack

Further to that point of order, Mr. Speaker. It is true that it was not objections by the hon. Member for Fife, Central (Mr. Hamilton) which prevented the Unit Pricing Bill from reaching Committee. I should like that firmly on the record. Nevertheless, on a number of Fridays when I was here the hon. Gentleman indulged in certain delaying tactics. This will no doubt redress the balance.

Mr. Speaker

I think that after that exchange we should proceed to the Private Notice Question.
