Order for Second Reading read.

Second Reading deferred till Friday 27 April.

On a point of order, Madam Deputy Speaker. I am not sure whether my hon. Friend the Member for Islington, North (Mr. Corbyn) was correct in saying that it was the hon. Member for Sheffield, Hallam (Mr. Patnick) who objected to my Bill. According to my recollection, it was the hon. Member for Norfolk, North-West (Mr. Bellingham).

Order. If one voice has been raised in objection, the Chair must take that objection.

Further to that point of order, Madam Deputy Speaker. There is a great deal of confusion among Conservative Members. The hon. Members for Norfolk, North-West (Mr. Bellingham) and for Sheffield, Hallam (Mr. Patnick)——

Order. The hon. Gentleman may think that there is confusion in the House, but the important point is that there is no confusion in the Chair.
