On a point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker. Many London Members will have been greatly disturbed to see in our local papers last Friday an advertisement placed by the Electoral Commission in connection with Thursday's mayoral elections. The advertisement shows a facsimile of a ballot paper, and suggests that the voter's mark be placed against candidate No. 6, who happens to be Mr. Johnson. May I ask whether Mr. Speaker has received a request from the Justice Ministry to make a statement to the House to clear up this extremely disturbing business?
