I will now rule on the complaint of breach of privilege raised by the hon. Member for Crewe (Mrs. Dunwoody).I have considered the matter of the complaint made yesterday by the hon. Member of certain passages in the Travel Trade Gazette newspaper. I am satisfied that this is a proper case for me to allow a motion with precedence over the Orders of the Day.
The Lord President of the Council and Leader of the House of Commons
(Mr. Edward Short)
In view of your ruling, Mr. Speaker, I beg to move,
It would, I think, be in the interests of the House as a whole now if it were to decide that no further debate should take place at this stage.That the matter of the complaint be referred to the Committee of Privileges.
Question put and agreed to.
That the matter of the complaint be referred to the Committee of Privileges.
