HC Deb 04 March 1980 vol 980 cc381-2

Ordered, That, at this day's sitting, the Highlands and Islands Air Services (Scotland) Bill may be proceeded with, though opposed, until any hour.—[Mr. Boscawen.]

Mr. Joseph Ashton (Bassetlaw)

On a point of order, Mr. Speaker. As there is no money resolution on the Order Paper, would it be in order to ask the Leader of the House to make a statement as to the Government's intentions?

Mr. St. John-Stevas

It would be perfectly in order to ask for a statement of the Government's intentions. The Government, as I made clear, accept the will of the House. How this should be put into practice is a matter for discussion.
