Order read for resuming adjourned

Debate on Second Reading [5 February.]

On a point of order, Madam Deputy Speaker. Is it in order for a junior Government Whip to block a Bill in this fashion when the Government themselves have said that the Bill is a worthwhile measure that may well do some good?

It is not for me to distinguish between a junior and a senior member of the Government, but it is perfectly in order for an hon. Member from the Government Front Bench to object to the Bill.

Further to that point of order, Madam Deputy Speaker. May I name Friday next for continuation of Second Reading?

Debate further adjourned till Friday next.
