On a point of order, Mr. Speaker. I wish to ask for your judgment on a matter which came to my notice at the latest possible hour. It relates to the Committee of Privileges which on behalf of the House is concerning itself with the circumstances under which Mr. Alan Grimshaw had been suspended from his employment with the National Coal Board following evidence which he had given to the Select Committee on Nationalised Industries and from which there flowed a report. That report is available to the Press and has been so available for a number of hours today, but is not yet available in the Vote Office. I should like your ruling, Mr. Speaker.

I shall investigate what the hon. Member for Don Valley (Mr. Kelley) said. I shall communicate with him or make a statement to the House on the point.
