Order for Second Reading read.

Order. The hon. Member should allow me to put the Question.

The Question is, That the Bill be now read a Second time.

On a point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker. That objection was not made in time. Therefore, the Second reading takes place now.

Order. The hon. Member has not moved the motion. Second Reading what day?

Further to that point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker. I think I am right in assuming that you were plainly waiting for an objection, but it was not uttered.

Order. I was plainly waiting for the hon. Member to move the motion, which he failed to do. He has now missed his chance.

I think that I have dealt with the hon. Member's point of order. He quite clearly missed the boat.

On another point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker. Of course that might be assumed, but why, then, was the objection uttered after your second pronouncement?

If I recall, the objection was taken before I proposed the Question. That is within my clear recollection. Second Reading what day?
