HC Deb 25 January 1991 vol 184 c627

Order for Second Reading read.

Read a Second time, and committed to a Standing Committee, pursuant to Standing Order No. 61 (Committal of Bills).

Mr. McCartney

On a point of order, Madam Deputy Speaker.

Madam Deputy Speaker.

Order. I require the hon. Gentleman to resume his seat. I have answered his point of order. I know how passionately he and many other hon. Members feel about legislation which has not been reached. I require him to conform with the courtesies of the House and to resume his seat.

Mr. Conal Gregory (York)

On a point of order, Madam Deputy Speaker. Is it in order that an hon. Member who sits on the Front Bench should deliberately frustrate the will of the House on a private Member's Bill?

Madam Deputy Speaker

That is not a matter for the Chair.
