I have a short statement to make to the House. There is an error in today's Order Paper. The Second Reading of the Diseases of Animals (Declaratory Amendment) Bill has been omitted. This Bill should have appeared as No. 12 on today's Order Paper; that is to say, immediately after the Freedom of Information Bill. The Order Paper is being reissued in its correct form and copies placed in the Vote Office. I thought, however, that I should specifically draw the attention of the House to this matter. I take the view that the Member in charge of the Bill should not be disadvantaged by this error, and I should like to thank the hon. Member for Tiverton (Mr. Maxwell-Hyslop) for the manner in which he brought this to our notice. The Bill was properly set down for today and appears for today in the Public Bill list.
