HC Deb 01 February 1977 vol 925 cc228-9
Mr. Emery

On a point of order, Mr. Speaker. It is about Questions, and I raise it in an endeavour to assist the Chair. As so often happens, Questions to the Prime Minister today have been concerned with what he does on a certain day or with a meeting with the TUC but, in fact, have covered a whole series of subjects hardly related to the original Questions. Would you consider referring this difficulty to the Sessional Procedure Committee so that we might make more sense of the types of Question which are put to the Prime Minister?

Mr. Speaker

The matter has already been referred to the Select Committee on Procedure, and I am sure that what the hon. Member for Honiton (Mr. Emery) said will have been noted.
