HC Deb 08 October 2001 vol 372 c829

Motion made, and Question put forthwith, pursuant to Standing Order No. 25 (Periodic adjournments).

That this House, at its rising this day, do adjourn till Monday 15 October. —[Mrs. McGuire.]

Mr. Paul Marsden (Shrewsbury and Atcham)

On a point of order, Mr. Speaker. There is growing disquiet that for the third time Parliament has been recalled yet hon. Members have been denied a vote on this war. Can you confirm to me that there will be no vote? Is it in order for hon. Members to vote on an Adjournment debate if similar occasions arise, when we are denied a substantive motion by the Government? [Interruption.]

Mr. Speaker

It seems as though the hon. Gentleman is getting advice already. Procedural advice is best given privately at the Chair. If the hon. Gentleman wishes to come to the Chair, I will give him some private advice.
