The following Question stood upon the Order Paper:


To ask the Minister of Supply if, in view of the unsatisfactory manner in which the Highways Hostel, Euxton, is managed by the Young Men's Christian Association-Young Women's Christian Association Joint Committee, he will consider transferring the management to his department.

On a point of order. Surely, Mr. Speaker, the use of the epithet "unsatisfactory" prejudges the answer to this Question. Is it right that a Question should be framed in this way?

The Question does make a statement about the manner in which the hostel is managed. It is proper to do so. The hon. Member who put down the Question takes upon himself the responsibility for the truth of the allegation.
