Former MP, Ebbw Vale
With all respect to you, Mr. Speaker, there was an altercation in the House. The point of order was raised by my hon. Friend the Member for Brixton (Mr. Lipton), and you then said, "This is not a point of order. It does not concern me." You then immediately called the Prime Minister, who did not respond—
That is not true. Therefore, in my respectful submission, a point of Privilege can be raised now, or not at all.
Further to that point of order, Mr. Speaker. In view of the circumstances in which this whole matter has been raised, and of the fact that no opportunity has been given either to the House or to you for proper reflection, may I call your attention to a variety of precedents where Mr. Speaker has asked that he might be allowed to consider the whole matter, without prejudice, and report upon it...
