HC Deb 20 November 1986 vol 105 c704

4.6 pm

Mr. Robert N. Wareing (Liverpool, West Derby)

On a point of order, Mr. Speaker. I seek your guidance on a matter of importance for the House and the country which arises out of a possible mistake in the Official Report. In columns 667 and 668 of the Official Report, the Division List for those going into the No Lobby against the Queen's Speech shows the names of the leader of the Liberal party and 14 of his colleagues, but fails to mention the hon. Member for Liverpool, Mossley Hill (Mr. Alton), the Liberal Chief Whip. Can that be right, or is the hon. Gentleman no longer the Liberal Chief Whip?

Mr. Speaker

I know nothing about these matters. The hon. Gentleman knows that only those who vote in the Division Lobby have their names recorded.
