Mr. Ian McCartney accordingly presented a Bill to ban the sale of secondhand furniture and bedding which contains polyurethane foam or other dangerous inflammable substances from January 1989: And the same was read the First time; and ordered to be read a Second time upon Friday 13 May and to be printed. [Bill 108.]
On a point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker. I ask that the record should show that while my hon. Friend the Member for Makerfield (Mr. McCartney) was moving his important ten-minute Bill only six Conservative Back Benchers were present, only five journalists were in the Gallery and Mr. Andrew Rawnsley left before my hon. Friend had even moved the motion.
