Charles Walker laments House ramming through its own legislation to delay Brexit

Charles Walker MP raises a Point of Order, House of Commons, 3rd April 2019

Charles Walker raises a Point of Order to record his concern that the House of Commons is pushing through major legislation to delay Brexit without the usual level of scrutiny and debate.


Mr Charles Walker (Broxbourne) (Con)

On a point of order, Mr Speaker. The House of Commons is about to pass a major piece of legislation without a Report stage or a substantive Third Reading. If the Government did this, the House would rightly be deeply irritated with them, so the House should find no virtue in its actions this evening.

Mr Speaker

The hon. Gentleman has made his own point in his own way and with his usual sincerity. The matter of virtue is not to be adjudicated by the Chair, but his point is on the record.
