HC Deb 25 March 1964 vol 692 c465

The following Question stood upon the Order Paper:


To ask the Lord Privy Seal if he will move to appoint a Select Committee to consider the desirability of setting up a plaque in Westminster Hall in memory of Sir Thomas More.

Mr. Speaker

Mr. Bevins—statement.

Sir T. Moore

On a point of order, Mr. Speaker, may I direct your attention to this Question and ask whether in your opinion any mistake has been made in the spelling of the surname?

Mr. Speaker

Westminster appears to be spelt normally.

Mr. Delargy

As this Question is in my name, and contains the words "in memory of", may I draw attention to the fact that, notwithstanding appearances, the hon. Member for Ayr (Sir T. Moore) is not yet dead?

Mr. Speaker

I am inclined to think that the transfer of the Savings Bank would be a healthier topic.

Mr. Emrys Hughes

Nobody would ever associate the hon. Member for Ayr (Sir T. Moore) with Utopia.
