On a point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker. We have just seen 13 Bills on the trot objected to by the Government Whip. Is there any way we could discover whether objections are ever on a point of substance or whether they occur simply because the Government do not like private Members' Bills?
The hon. Gentleman is a very experienced Member of this House and knows precisely how these things operate. There may well be room for change or improvement, but it is certainly not for me to advocate it this afternoon.
