HC Deb 20 March 1998 vol 308 c1595

Order read for consideration in Committee.

Hon. Members


Dr. Jenny Tonge (Richmond Park)

On a point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker. I do not understand how it can be possible that such an important measure that affects the safety of women and elderly people in this city can be delayed by a single hon. Member who has not taken any interest before now—

Mr. Deputy Speaker (Mr. Michael Lord)

Order. These are not matters for debate today. We are carrying out the procedures in the normal way.

Committee deferred till Friday 27 March.
