Selection Committee


That Andrew Stephenson be discharged from the Selection Committee and Jeremy Quin be added.—(Jeremy Quin.)

Environmental Audit Committee


That Alex Cunningham be discharged from the Environmental Audit Committee and Ruth Jones be added.—(Bill Wiggin, on behalf of the Selection Committee.)

On a point of order, Madam Deputy Speaker. It has just been revealed to me in an e-mail that Clydesdale Bank plans to shut its Shettleston Road branch, which is in my constituency. Can you advise me what opportunities might be available to me, as a constituency Member, to place on record that people in Shettleston will not stand for this closure, and that we will fight it every step of the way?

I thank the hon. Gentleman for his point of order. He has asked me a question to which I can give a very direct answer. If he wishes to draw this important matter—and I appreciate how important it is in his constituency—to the attention of the House and of the appropriate Minister, there are various ways in which he can do so. I am sure that he will receive good advice from the Table Office, and I am sure that we shall hear more of this matter in the coming days.
