HC Deb 08 June 2004 vol 422 c145 12.30 pm
Mr. George Foulkes (Carrick, Cumnock and Doon Valley) (Lab/Co-op)

On a point of order, Mr. Speaker. I wish to make a sincere and abject personal apology to my hon. Friend the Member for Linlithgow (Mr. Dalyell) for calling him a Jonah yesterday. Of course, I should have said a Jeremiah, as I am sure you realised immediately, Mr. Speaker, as did one or two of my colleagues.

Mr. Speaker

The right hon. Gentleman should brush up on the Old Testament.
