§ Mr. D. N. Campbell-Savours (Workington)
On a point of order, Mr. Speaker. During transport questions you ruled that question No. 10, in the name of the hon. Member for Reading, North (Mr. Durant), concerned a constituency matter. I do not put the question to you in any critical sense, but I wondered on what basis you so ruled, as the question related to the passage of a rail line through nine parliamentary constituencies. It also dealt with the question of electrification, which affects every constituency, because electrification has a specific effect upon the investment programme of British Rail.
§ Mr. Speaker
Not on that question, it did not. The question dealt with the electrification of the Paddington to Reading railway and I was dealing with the hon. Member for Reading, North (Mr. Durant). Obviously his constituents were the people mainly concerned. I do not often explain my reasons, but those were my reasons on this occasion.
