Point of Order
Mr Roy Beggs (East Antrim)
On a point of order, Madam Speaker. May I bring to your attention the remarks made earlier by the hon. Member for Hendon, South (Mr. Marshall), during his support for integrated education in Northern Ireland? His remarks cast a slur on every Northern Ireland Member present who was educated at a Roman Catholic maintained school or a state school in Northern Ireland. I ask you to examine those remarks. In the event that the hon. Gentleman does not concede that he was suggesting that each of us is a loud-mouthed bigot, will you ask him to withdraw the remark?
Mr John Marshall (Hendon South)
Further to the point of order, Madam Speaker. Nothing in what I said was meant to be a slur on individual Members. I am sorry that certain hon. Members may have taken it as such, because it was not intended in that way.
