HC Deb 25 October 1976 vol 918 cc1-2

Order read for resuming adjourned debate on Question [21st October] That the Bill be now considered.

Debate to be resumed this day at Seven o'clock.

Mr. Dalyell

On a point of order, Mr. Speaker. May I ask whether this Bill will indeed be taken at 7 o'clock, in the light of the Government motion on the Order Paper?

Mr. Speaker

I can explain that. I was a little puzzled myself. I understand that the motion that the House may pass later will supersede what we are doing at the moment.

Mr. Rooker

Further to that point of order, Mr. Speaker. Will you ensure that the House has an opportunity to decide whether, at 3.30 p.m., it wishes to pass the Government motion relating to Business of the House?

Mr. Speaker

Yes, I will.
