§ Mr. Kinnock
On a different point of order, Mr. Speaker, of which I was able to give you only the briefest notice. There is a report today in the Western Mail—which describes itself as the "national newspaper of Wales", as you may know—by a journalist called Mr. John Osmond, reporting the activities of a research secretary of Plaid Cymru, Mr. Robert Griffiths, who appears, according to this report, to have drawn up a league table of "wreckers and filibusters" on the Scotland and Wales Bill.
I am not so sensitive as to want to make a song and dance about the possibilities of a breach of privilege arising from this article, but I would ask whether you could confirm that it is within order in this House, and that it is the duty of Members of Parliament, especially in Committee, as we have been for the 10 days of which this report speaks, to raise points with Ministers and with other hon. Members and that there can be no claim that there have been filibustering or deliberate attempts to wreck the Bill as a consequence of hon. Members doing their job properly, as they were sent here to do.
§ Mr. Speaker
I will gladly rule that it is the duty of a Member of Parliament to do his job properly.
