On a point of order, Mr Deputy Speaker. You said in response to the point of order of my hon. Friend Kevin Brennan that a point about who gets to speak is not a point of order for the Chair. A point about which amendments are selected is, however, a point of order for the Chair. My amendment to this part of the Bill deals with the same kind of special privilege that other Members have addressed in their amendments, but it was not selected. I appreciate that the Chair has a difficult task. However, my point of order is if this Bill had been taken in full Committee, would not my amendment have been allowed and debated?
