On a point of order, Mr. Speaker. I have received many letters regarding my Bill on Friday, some of which have been dealt with by my secretary and some by the Library. This is part of the support campaign by the Daily Star—[Laughter.] Tory Members' constituents who write to me do not consider it to be a laughing matter.—[Interruption.]

Order. What has this to do with me?

I am asking you, Sir, whether there is any arrangement—[Interruption.] If hon. Gentlemen would shut up for a moment, I could continue. Are there any arrangements whereby authorities in the House could ensure that the increasing number of letters that have been sent to me instead of to the hon. Member concerned could be distributed accordingly by Friday?

I cannot think that that falls anywhere within my responsibilities.
