Mr. James Cran and
Mr. Nigel Waterson.

Question accordingly agreed to.

12 Mar 1998 : Column 830

Bill read the Third time, and passed.

12 Mar 1998 : Column 831

Mr. John McDonnell (Hayes and Harlington): On a point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker. Earlier today during business questions, I requested a debate on the human rights record of my predecessor, Mr. Terry Dicks, who had visited Iraq and subsequently supported the hanging of Fazal Barzoft, a journalist with The Observer. He also cast aspersions on the veracity of the gassing of Kurds in the village of Halaji.

While I was out of the Chamber, meeting constituents involved in a dispute at a local factory, I believe that a Conservative Member returned to the matter, on the basis that I was repeating a libel which I settled out of court.

I raised the matter, not to repeat any libel but on the basis of information contained on the record in Hansard of the previous Member for Hayes and Harlington. He said that the Conservative Government, without any evidence being available at all, were quick to condemn the Iraqi Government for "allegedly" gassing the Kurds living in the north of Iraq. That comment followed an Amnesty International report confirming the gassing.

In a newspaper article, which has been supplied by the Library, he went on to support the hanging of Fazal Barzoft--

Mr. Deputy Speaker (Mr. Michael J. Martin): Order. I have listened carefully to the hon. Gentleman, but I cannot let him continue, because that is not a point of order. These are personal matters and personal views. They are not matters for me.
