HC Deb 26 November 2001 vol 375 c737

Question proposed, That the clause stand part of the Bill.

Mr. Dalyell

I am making an important point; I would not be wearying the House if it were not.

I then asked Margaret Thatcher: Has there yet been a complete or candid explanation by the Dutch as to why, for four long years, their British and German partners were not told about a major security leak"—[Official Report, 29 January 1980: Vol. 977, c. 1123.]

The Chairman

Order. I am sorry to interrupt the hon. Gentleman again, but clause 78 deals with repeals relating to security of civil nuclear installations. Again, I am not sure that I get the connection between what the hon. Gentleman wishes to say and the matter that is before the House.

Mr. Dalyell

If I could just have 30 seconds.

The Chairman

Order. If the hon. Gentleman is not sure how his comments connect to the clause, it is important, within the remaining two minutes, that we get on with the business that needs to be dealt with before 8 o'clock.

Question put and agreed to.

Clause 78 ordered to stand part of the Bill.
