Ways And Means

Gaming (Amendment) Bill Lords

Resolved,

That any Act resulting from the Gaming (Amendment) Bill [Lords.] may provide for the charging of fees payable into the Consolidated Fund in respect of applications for certificates of consent under Schedule 2 to the Gaming Act 1968.—[Mr. Nicholas Baker.]

On a point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker. I did not hear any objection to the Hare Coursing (Abolition) Bill. Was it the hon. Member for Gainsborough and Horncastle (Mr. Leigh) or the hon. Member for Dorset, North (Mr. Baker) who objected? Surely we should have the right to know which hon. Member objected—[Interruption.] One of my hon. Friends has suggested that it was the hon. Member for Sheffield, Hallam (Mr. Patnick) who objected—he is a Government Whip. It would be a new departure if the Government were objecting to that Bill.

Further to that point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker. It may be helpful to you to know that I distinctly heard my hon. Friend the Member for Gainsborough and Horncastle (Mr. Leigh) object to that Bill.

This is becoming a well-trodden path at 2.30 pm on Fridays. The procedure that we followed was correct.
