On a point of order Mr. Speaker. Will you explain why Mr. Paddy Meehan's book cannot he mentioned in this place? He has a point of view that should be heard, whether you or I agree with him, and he has expressed his view in print. He says that he was fitted up by the security forces. He has a lot to say, and one should bear in mind the fact that he received a free pardon some years ago—
Sit down, please. There is an important debate following this. Please let me deal with this matter.
When I call an hon. Gentleman to ask a question, I expect him to ask a question on his own account. The hon. Member was trying to draw attention to somebody else's comments in a book—[Interruption.] I gave the hon. Gentleman the opportunity to ask his own question. He must relate it to his own experience, even if he draws attention to something that he has read.
May I ask your advice, Mr. Speaker? I see from page 161 of the Order Paper that there has been an amendment to the Queen's Speech in the name of the right hon. Member for Chesterfield (Mr. Benn). As that amendment seems to differ from that placed on the Order Paper by the Leader of the Opposition, and as it takes precedence on the Order Paper, will we have the opportunity to vote on it, because it is an important issue?
