HC Deb 06 July 1984 vol 63 c668

Order for Second Reading read.

Hon. Members


Mr. Deputy Speaker

Second Reading what day?

Mr. Murphy

With the permission of the hon. Member in charge of the Bill, Sir, Monday 9 July.

Mr. Chris Smith (Islington, South and Finsbury)

On a point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker. On the Greater Accesss to the Countryside Bill, on which I endeavoured to catch your eye to raise a point of order, and on the Wildlife and Countryside (Amendment) Bill, we have already heard from the Government that they intend to bring proposals before the House later this year to amend the Wildlife and Countryside Act. I seek your guidance about how we can ask the Government, even though, through their Whip, they have objected to both Bills, when they intend to bring these matters back to the House and what they propose to do.

Mr. Deputy Speaker

The hon. Gentleman knows that it would be extremely rash of me if I attempted to respond to that.
