Point of Order

Volume 491: debated on Thursday 30 April 2009

On a point of order, Mr. Speaker. The Department for Culture, Media and Sport has today made a major announcement on internet gambling. You might not be aware of that because the announcement was made not in the Chamber or as a written statement, but on page four of the Financial Times. The Department has now also come out with a press release. Do you agree that such announcements should be made in the Chamber so that we have the opportunity to comment about them?

If the hon. Gentleman allows me to read the article he mentions, perhaps I will be able to write to him about it—that is the best way to proceed.
