HC Deb 23 February 1984 vol 54 c978
Mr. Robert N. Wareing (Liverpool, West Derby)

On a point of order, Mr. Speaker. You will be aware that many people are protesting about the Government's action at GCHQ. I wish to draw your attention to the fact that one of my constituents who is employed by the Customs and Excise in Liverpool has been prevented from taking part in the lobby as a result of the decision by a Minister in the Treasury to cancel the leave that he required for that purpose. Are you able to protect the rights of our people who wish to lobby their representatives in Parliament?

Mr. Speaker

I ruled on this the other day. I told the hon. Gentleman that access to the Central Lobby today would be the same as on any other day. I am not responsible for whether leave has been cancelled. That is not a matter for me.
