On a point of order. Before the House decides whether to accept the Motion standing in the name of the Prime Minister, Mr. Speaker, may I ask what is the effect of the term "Government Business"? In particular, may I ask whether it covers, or is intended to cover, the Motions for the appointment of certain Select Committees and a Joint Committee tonight?
The Lord Privy Seal (Mr. Harry Crook-shank):
For the information of the hon. Member for Nelson and Colne (Mr. S. Silverman), may I say that it is not the intention of the Government to take these Motions tonight.
