Point of Order

Volume 515: debated on Thursday 16 September 2010

On a point of order, Mr Speaker. I thought the Prime Minister was being unduly modest about Prime Minister’s questions yesterday when he said it was a great benefit. Were you encouraged, Mr Speaker, that he was really asking the House to have PMQs twice a week?

I am not aware of an imminent change of the kind the hon. Gentleman either desires or anticipates. I am minded otherwise not to respond to his observations, but simply to regard them as a statement for the record. The House is grateful to the hon. Gentleman.
