Alert me about debates like this
On a point of order, Mr. Speaker. Is it not the custom of this House that where an hon. Member has two Oral Questions in succession the second goes to the end of the queue?
I am advised, rather hurriedly, that that applies only to the first Department to be questioned.
May I add to what I said to the hon. Member for Islington, East (Mr. John D. Grant)? I understand that the practice is in accordance with a Report of the Select Committee on Procedure which was accepted by the House.
