HC Deb 20 January 1981 vol 997 cc148-50
Mr. Wilkinson

On a point of order, Mr. Speaker. May I draw your attention to the fact that only two questions to the Prime Minister out of 42 tabled asked anything other than that the engagements for today be listed by the Prime Minister? This makes a mockery of the questioning of the Prime Minister, which should be better structured and ordered. May I ask, Mr. Speaker, that this matter be referred to the Procedure Committee and discussed through the usual channels?

Mr. Speaker

I have said before to the House that I think that we have spoilt Prime Minister's Question Time. However, it is for hon. Members to table substantive questions on the Order Paper.
