HC Deb 25 January 1979 vol 961 c722
Mr. Steen

On a point of order, Mr. Speaker. Yesterday I raised under Standing Order No. 9 the question of the effect of the grave diggers and crematorium operators strike and the inability to bury the dead in Liverpool". After you had given your ruling, the hon. Member for Liverpool, Scotland Exchange (Mr. Parry) stated that I had given a distorted and biased account of the strike in Liverpool"—[Official Report, 24 January 1979; Vol. 961, c. 452.] Subsequently, he told me that what I had said was factually correct. May I have your guidance as to how I can best record that he wishes to withdraw his statement?

Mr. Speaker

The hon. Gentleman has made his point.
