HC Deb 15 April 1991 vol 189 c39 4.42 pm
Mr. Simon Hughes (Southwark and Bermondsey)

On a point of order, Mr. Speaker. I realise that, by comparison with the subject that we have just been discussing, this is a very small point.

When the Minister for the Arts was answering questions today he made a remark which, on the face of it —though I am sure it was not intended—could be misleading. On the subject of the London borough grant committee, he said that Labour and the Liberal Democrats had a majority. That is true, but the budget requires a two-thirds majority vote, and it is Conservative members who are blocking the resolution ——

Mr. Speaker

Order. I cannot be responsible for adjudicating on the accuracy of answers that are given in the House. The hon. Gentleman must find another opportunity to raise this matter. It is not one for me.
