Orders of the Day — Civil Rights (Disabled Persons) Bill (10 Feb 1995)

Mr Tristan Garel-Jones: I take the hon. Gentleman's point. I certainly do not wish to prevent private Members from introducing Bills. No doubt hon. Members who are more experienced will correct me if I am wrong, but the current convention is that if a Bill is given a Second Reading, the Government normally supply a money resolution so that the Bill is considered in Committee. I suggest that the emphasis should be...

Orders of the Day — Civil Rights (Disabled Persons) Bill (10 Feb 1995)

Mr Tristan Garel-Jones: Let me make it clear to hon. Members, particularly Opposition Members, that I am not giving way to them because I do not want to take part—I know perfectly well what the Friday tactics are—in any tactics to waste the time of the House. I want to make my point and then let the House get on. The clause—

Orders of the Day — Civil Rights (Disabled Persons) Bill (10 Feb 1995)

Mr Tristan Garel-Jones: I am particularly concerned about clause 36, which involves the money resolution. I wish to make it absolutely clear to the general public who will be following the debate why, in effect, it is the crucial clause in terms of whether the Bill makes progress. [Interruption.] The hon. Member for Kingswood (Mr. Berry) may sneer, but it is an exceptionally important point. I know that he is a...

Orders of the Day — Civil Rights (Disabled Persons) Bill (10 Feb 1995)

Mr Tristan Garel-Jones: I am grateful to you, Mr. Deputy Speaker. I certainly do not want to challenge your guidance, but, with respect, you will be aware that the crucial question, as regards progress with the Bill, is whether the Government will choose to give it a money resolution, if it receives a Second Reading.

Orders of the Day — Civil Rights (Disabled Persons) Bill (10 Feb 1995)

Mr Tristan Garel-Jones: If the hon. Lady does not believe that whether a Bill is funded is crucial in enabling it to fulfil its objectives, we will not get beyond square one. It is absolutely crucial. I have no intention of defying any of your guidance, Mr. Deputy Speaker, but I contend that clause 36, which involves the money resolution, is crucial. It is important that the public understand why Parliament has...

Orders of the Day — Civil Rights (Disabled Persons) Bill (10 Feb 1995)

Mr Tristan Garel-Jones: When the hon. Gentleman is as old as me, and has left the Administration, he will find that one does not have to act at the bidding of the Whips, the Prime Minister or anyone else. If my remarks stray away from those of my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister, so be it. I disagree. I can answer—

Mr Tristan Garel-Jones: rose—

Orders of the Day — Civil Rights (Disabled Persons) Bill (10 Feb 1995)

Mr Tristan Garel-Jones: If you are ruling, Mr. Deputy Speaker, that it is out of order to discuss the financing of a Bill and the Supply mechanism that exists for its financing, that is an important and serious ruling. I hope that you are not. I am confining my remarks to that subject and it is significant that the hon. Member for Rochdale (Ms Lynne) regards it as an inconsequence—

Orders of the Day — Civil Rights (Disabled Persons) Bill (10 Feb 1995)

Mr Tristan Garel-Jones: The hon. Member for Kingswood asked me a question and I want to respond. Yes, I disagree with the Government's over-generous practice of letting it be known that, if a Bill receives a Second Reading, they will provide a money resolution.

Orders of the Day — Civil Rights (Disabled Persons) Bill (10 Feb 1995)

Mr Tristan Garel-Jones: I am grateful, Mr. Deputy Speaker. The time of the House is being taken up because I am not allowed to develop a simple argument, which I had expected to do in about 10 minutes. My answer to the hon. Member for Kingswood is, yes, I disagree with the practice that has arisen, which the Treasury Bench carry out over-generously—the convention that, if a Bill receives a Second Reading on the...

Orders of the Day — Civil Rights (Disabled Persons) Bill (10 Feb 1995)

Mr Tristan Garel-Jones: I confirm no such thing. The hon. Gentleman is confirming that he is here to support the Bill and to make party political points. We all receive letters from our constituents on this and numerous other private Members' Bills. They believe that we are genuinely attempting to legislate, but, if we are honest with ourselves, we will admit that such Bills will not make progress—

Orders of the Day — Civil Rights (Disabled Persons) Bill (10 Feb 1995)

Mr Tristan Garel-Jones: May I seek your guidance on a point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker, before I attempt to resume my speech? Will you guide me? The Bill contains a clause—36—that requires the Government to introduce a money resolution. Will you confirm that that is the case, and if it is, will you confirm that it would be in order to discuss clause 36, why a money resolution is necessary and, very briefly,...

Orders of the Day — Civil Rights (Disabled Persons) Bill (10 Feb 1995)

Mr Tristan Garel-Jones: Further to that point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker. You and I have been colleagues for some years and have served on Standing Committees together. I am trying to make a point so that the public will understand why the House, including the Opposition and the Liberal party, has decided that Supply remains—

Orders of the Day — Civil Rights (Disabled Persons) Bill (10 Feb 1995)

Mr Tristan Garel-Jones: Clearly, I will have to accept your ruling in that matter, Mr. Deputy Speaker, and I will, of course, but perhaps, on a further point of order—[Interruption] Since you know that in no circumstances would I defy your ruling, will you guide me as to how I can take the matter further, as it is important for this and for other private Members' Bills?

Orders of the Day — Civil Rights (Disabled Persons) Bill (10 Feb 1995)

Mr Tristan Garel-Jones: I obviously accept your ruling, Mr. Deputy Speaker. I have two questions for the hon. Member for Monklands, West and one for my hon. Friend the Minister of State. I realise that my hon. Friend does not expect this question and will not be briefed to answer it. I do not expect him to give a firm answer at this stage, but I ask him to give an undertaking that he will raise the matter with my...

Orders of the Day — Civil Rights (Disabled Persons) Bill (10 Feb 1995)

Mr Tristan Garel-Jones: I repeat my question to my hon. Friend the Minister of State. Will he give an undertaking to raise this important matter, which I have raised with the Select Committee on Procedure, with the Secretary of State before the Whips automatically provide a money resolution in the event of the Bill receiving its Second Reading? I apologise to the hon. Member for Monklands, West because I shall not...
