Mr. John Biggs-Davison (Epping Forest)

On a point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker. Are you putting the motion regarding the Northern Ireland Committee? Some hon. Members could not hear.

Mr. Deputy Speaker

If the hon. Gentleman watches his Order Paper he will realise that I have to deal with the Abortion (Amendment) Bill first and the Government's proposal.
