Point of Order

Volume 474: debated on Wednesday 23 April 2008

On a point of order, Mr. Speaker. On Monday, the House heard a savage attack on Mr. Mohamed al-Fayed, made under parliamentary privilege. Can you tell me whether any redress at all exists for people who are traduced, even under parliamentary privilege?

Order. Privilege is absolute. [Interruption.] Order. I am not going to pursue the matter; I have given a ruling. Will hon. Members who are leaving the Chamber do so quietly?
