Points of Order

Volume 485: debated on Monday 15 December 2008

On a point of order, Mr. Speaker. Has any Minister indicated to you whether a statement will be made on the alleged Madoff fraud? Surely, as $50 billion is a huge amount of money, a ministerial statement to reassure the UK markets would be appropriate.

I am sure that the Ministers concerned will have heard the hon. Gentleman’s concerns.

On a point of order, Mr. Speaker. Has anybody asked you for a statement on the failure of the Greater Manchester congestion charge, which affects not only the north-west but many other areas that want to bring in such a scheme? Has anyone brought that subject to your attention, and may we have a statement?

No one has brought that matter to my attention apart from the hon. Gentleman through his point of order.
