HC Deb 28 January 1981 vol 997 c929
Mr. Bob Cryer (Keighley)

On a point of order, Mr. Speaker. This matter arose at Question Time, but naturally, in order to be helpful, I did not delay the House.

My question No. 6 was linked with No. 1. It is usual for the Department concerned, when linking questions, to notify the hon. Members involved. I imagine from the nonplussed appearance of the hon. Member for Uxbridge (Mr. Shersby), whose question was also linked, that he was not notified. I do not want that useful advantage to hon. Members to be denied by Departments in future.

Mr. Speaker

I am sure that the hon. Gentleman's remarks will have been noted. If the hon. Member was not notified, I am sure that that was due to human error.
