HC Deb 23 May 1986 vol 98 c649 10.21 am
Mr. Jerry Wiggin (Weston-super-Mare)

On a point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker. This morning, I was forced to come to the House by a circuitous route as I was prevented by the constable on duty from entering Birdcage Walk. I am aware that rehearsals for trooping the colour were notified in the all-party Whip, but the presence of my vehicle would not have disrupted the tail end of the parade. If, on a Friday morning when the House is sitting, it is necessary to have rehearsals, constables should be told of the Sessional Orders. I hope that Mr. Speaker will draw this matter to the attention of the Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police.

Mr. Deputy Speaker (Sir Paul Dean)

I am sorry that the hon. Gentleman has been inconvenienced. I shall cause immediate inquiries to be made.
