The following Question stood upon the Order Paper:

To ask the Undersecretary of State for Air, why, in a case about which details have been sent to him, a man who has completed his National Service in the Royal Army Service Corps and has done Reserve training in the Army, has now been called for Reserve training with the Royal Air Force.

On a point of order. Question No. 45 concerns a constituent of mine. I understand that the hon. Member who is asking the Question and has not bothered to turn up today is living in my division, and that the constituent has been asked by my Labour opponent not to approach me on this Question. May I ask whether my hon. Friend the Under-Secretary of State for Air will be allowed to answer this Question?

The hon. Member who put the Question down is not here. The hon. Member for Brighton, Pavilion (Mr. Teeling) should raise the matter with the hon. Gentleman whose name is on the Paper.

Is it not the case that this Question will be answered in writing afterwards? This is a point which ought to be raised, because the matter is of extreme urgency for my constituent.

A Question can only be asked by the hon. Member whose name is on the Paper.
