HC Deb 25 April 1986 vol 96 c632

Order read for resuming adjourned debate on Second Reading [21 February].

Hon. Members


Ms. Clare Short

On a point of order—

Mr. Deputy Speaker

Order. We must complete proceedings on this Bill first.

Second Reading deferred till Friday 2 May.

Ms. Clare Short

On a point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker. It is relevant to the points of order raised before. Obviously, any of us who have gone to the trouble to introduce a Bill are interested in who objects to it from the Conservative Benches. You moved so fast that, as I simply moved around to try to see who objected, you had moved on and not allowed me to name a day. The day I wanted to give was 13 June and I am grateful to you for accepting it.

Mr. Deputy Speaker

I accept the hon. Lady's date of 13 June.

Mr. Corbyn

On a point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker. Am I right in thinking that the hon. Member for Derby, North (Mr. Knight) was the one who opposed that Bill?

Mr. Deputy Speaker

Order. It is not in order for hon. Members to try to have a debate on this. I have told hon. Members the procedures which we follow and I have given a clear indication of the course of action that is open to them if they object to the procedures.
