HC Deb 06 March 1998 vol 307 c1360

Order for Second Reading read.

Hon. Members


Second Reading deferred till Friday 13 March.

Mrs. Helen Brinton (Peterborough)

On a point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker. The Home Zones Bill was supposed to be third on the list.

Mr. Deputy Speaker

The name of the Bill was read out, but nobody moved the motion.

Mrs. Brinton

When was the title of the Bill read out?

Mr. Deputy Speaker

The title of the Bill was read out in order, as it appears on the Order Paper. No voice was heard to move Second Reading. Therefore, I recorded the Bill as not moved.

Mr. Chris Mullin (Sunderland, South)

On a point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker. Is it possible to learn which Conservative representative of vested interests objected to my Bill?

Mr. Deputy Speaker

The hon. Gentleman knows the form extremely well. He must be observant.
