HC Deb 10 May 1996 vol 277 c609

Order for Second Reading read.

Hon. Members


Second Reading deferred till Friday 12 July.

Ms Janet Anderson (Rossendale and Darwen)

On a point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker. Could you tell the House whether a request has been received to make a statement on the need to introduce a criminal offence of stalking? Now that the Government have objected to my Bill, the victims of stalking will have to wait at least another year to be put out of their misery.

Mr. Deputy Speaker (Sir Geoffrey Lofthouse)

I am not aware that any request has been made to make a statement.
