HC Deb 28 November 1997 vol 301 c1272

Read a Second time, and committed to a Standing Committee, pursuant to Standing Order No. 63 (Committal of Bills).

Mr. Bernard Jenkin (North Essex)

On a point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker. I am sorry to disrupt the business of the House. I am named as a sponsor of the Community Care (Residential Accommodation) Bill, which has just received a Second Reading, but there must have been some kind of error because I am not a sponsor of that legislation.

Mr. Deputy Speaker (Mr. Michael J. Martin)

That matter will be examined.

Mr. Jenkin

It is a serious point of order.

Mr. Deputy Speaker

It must be—the hon. Gentleman raised it. It would assist the Chair if hon. Members would be seated or leave the Chamber so that I may conduct the business of the House properly.
