HC Deb 06 December 1979 vol 975 c641
Mr. Tom Ellis

On a point of order, Mr. Speaker. My point of order arises out of something that the Prime Minister said earlier today. Some hon. Members may feel that what I have to say is unimportant but many of our citizens regard it as significant. The Prime Minister—inadvertently I am sure—misled the House when she said that the Government enjoy the support of the majority of the British people. The Government enjoy the support of only 33 per cent. of the British electorate. Can a means be found to correct that claim?

Mr. Speaker

I must ask hon. Members not to waste our time with interventions which clearly are not points of order. It is unfair. The debate that is to follow is only short.
