Point of Order

Volume 580: debated on Monday 12 May 2014

On a point of order, Mr Speaker. May I ask your indulgence and advice on how I might correct what I am sure was an unintentional calumny by the Secretary of State when he referred in passing to my support for a free school in my constituency? I wish to assure the House that my support for William Perkin school is predicated entirely on my respect for the teachers, staff and pupils and not on a loathsome system that diverts resources from those in need.

I am grateful to the hon. Gentleman who has, I think, found his own salvation, as he knows and as the House will detect. He expresses himself with the force and alacrity with which he has been associated in the Chamber these past 17 years.
