§ Order for Second Reading read.
§ Mr. Wellbeloved
Further to that point of order, Mr. Speaker. Is it not a fact that under the Standing Orders, once a Bill has been objected to and a Motion has been placed on the Notice Paper, the Measure must automatically go down for a seven o'clock debate before its Second Reading can be achieved?
§ Mr. Speaker
I think the hon. Gentleman is perfectly right. I confess that I expected to hear a shout ex abundanti cautela of "Object".
§ Mr. Arthur Lewis
Further to the points of order that have been raised with you, Mr. Speaker, might I suggest that it is probably because the microphones were not working properly that you did not hear the Chairman of Ways and Means say "Tomorrow", and that had you heard him say that, you would not have been misled by the malfunctioning of the microphones?
§ Bill to be read a Second time Tomorrow.
