On a point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker. It is relevant to the points of order raised before. Obviously, any of us who have gone to the trouble to introduce a Bill are interested in who objects to it from the Conservative Benches. You moved so fast that, as I simply moved around to try to see who objected, you had moved on and not allowed me to name a day. The day I wanted to give was 13 June and I am grateful to you for accepting it.

Mr. Deputy Speaker:

I accept the hon. Lady's date of 13 June.

On a point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker. Am I right in thinking that the hon. Member for Derby, North (Mr. Knight) was the one who opposed that Bill?

Mr. Deputy Speaker:

Order. It is not in order for hon. Members to try to have a debate on this. I have told hon. Members the procedures which we follow and I have given a clear indication of the course of action that is open to them if they object to the procedures.
