HC Deb 24 July 1979 vol 971 cc489-90

10.14 p.m.

The Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster and Leader of the House of Commons (Mr. Norman St. John-Stevas)

On a point of order, Mr. Speaker. With permission, I wish to inform the House that the draft Regional Development Grants (Variation of Prescribed Percentages) Order will not be moved this evening. A revised draft as proposed by the Joint Committee on Statutory Instruments has been laid tonight, and it will be debated tomorrow.

Mr. Michael Foot (Ebbw Vale)

Further to that point or order, Mr. Speaker. I thank the right hon. Gentleman for his statement. Does he think that there is an outside chance that the Government will have got it right tomorrow?
