HC Deb 24 February 1978 vol 944 cc1957-8

Order for Second Reading read.

Hon. Members


Mr. Norman St. John Stevas (Chelmsford)

On a point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker. May I protest at the vetoing of this Bill by the Government when they support the principle of the Bill. We shall continue our struggle for justice.

Mr. Michael English (Nottingham, West)

Further to that point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker. The hon. Gentleman is well aware that many Back Benchers on both sides of the House object to the alliance between the two Front Benches on this issue.

Mr. Hugh Jenkins (Putney)


Mr. Deputy Speaker

I am not taking points of order during the time we are going through these Bills.

Second Reading deferred till Friday 14th April.
