Mr. Deputy Speaker: I think that that procedure has already been demonstrated and is in order.

Mr. Deputy Speaker: Second Reading what day? No day named.

Mr. Andrew Dismore (Hendon): On a point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker. Is it not the normal convention that if a Member is moving a Bill on behalf of another hon. Member, they should say that they have the consent of the Member concerned?

Hon. Members: Wrong again.

Mr. Deputy Speaker: Order. Not on the question whether the Bill is moved, no.

RIGHT TO SELF-EMPLOYMENT BILL

Order for Second Reading read.

Mr. Deputy Speaker: Second Reading what day? No day named.

Mrs. Cheryl Gillan (Chesham and Amersham): On a point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker. I wonder whether you could advise me. We have so far had three Bills this afternoon in respect of which Her Majesty had to go to the trouble to give her consent to allow us to proceed to Second Reading. Is it not appalling that, Her Majesty having gone to that trouble, we do not now have the opportunity as a House to consider those three Bills? Could you advise me how we may enable those three Bills to be discussed and considered in the House after Her Majesty has gone to such trouble?

Mr. Deputy Speaker: That is not a matter for the Chair.

CORPORATE RESPONSIBILITY BILL

Order for Second Reading read.

Hon. Members: Object.

Mr. Deputy Speaker: Second Reading what day? No day named.

Dr. Julian Lewis: On a point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker. I seek your guidance once again. Is there any way in which at least we can place on the record the fact that now, Labour Back Benchers' Bills are being killed by their own Government Whips?

Mr. Deputy Speaker: I think the hon. Gentleman has just done so.

HEALTH REFORM (EDUCATION AND PUBLIC INVOLVEMENT) BILL

Mr. Deputy Speaker: Not moved.

19 Jul 2002 : Column 635

PRESCRIPTIONS (CHRONIC DISEASES) BILL

Order for Second Reading read.

Hon. Members: Object.

To be read a Second time on Thursday 14 November.

Simon Hughes (Southwark, North and Bermondsey): On a point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker. Many of us are used to this end-of-term cull of good prospective legislation—[Hon. Members: "Oh."]—by the Government. To which Committee would we refer the question whether we could make the Government give reasons for objections when they make them?

Mr. Deputy Speaker: The only advice that I can give the hon. Gentleman is that he might take this up with the Procedure Committee. I am sure that the Chairman would be pleased to hear from him.

VACCINATION OF CHILDREN (PARENTAL CHOICE) BILL

Order for Second Reading read.

Hon. Members: Object.

Mr. Deputy Speaker: Second Reading what day? No day named.

Mr. Dismore: On a point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker. As hon. Members have moved Bills in the names of other Members who are not present without indicating

19 Jul 2002 : Column 636

whether they have the consent of those Members, which is the usual courtesy, can we assume that they are doing so without the Member's consent?

Mr. Deputy Speaker: That is not an assumption on which the occupant of the Chair can comment.

PATIENTS WITHOUT LEGAL CAPACITY (SAFEGUARDS) BILL

Order for Second Reading read.

Geraint Davies (Croydon, Central): I beg to move formally, with the consent of the hon. Member concerned.

Order for Second Reading read.

Mr. Deputy Speaker: Second Reading what day? No day named.

Mr. Desmond Swayne (New Forest, West): On a point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker. My constituents are crying out for this Bill, and I have had inquiries about it—

Mr. Deputy Speaker: Order. I am afraid that the hon. Gentleman cannot engage in a debate now. He could have done so if he had been given the opportunity, but he cannot do so now.

ANIMAL SANCTUARIES (LICENSING) (No. 2) BILL

Order for Second Reading read.

Hon. Members: Object.

Mr. Deputy Speaker: Second Reading what day? No day named.

ORGAN DONATION (PRESUMED CONSENT AND SAFEGUARDS) (No. 2) BILL

Order for Second Reading read.

Hon. Members: Object.

Mr. Deputy Speaker: Second Reading what day? No day named.

Mrs. Gillan: On a point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker. So far we have dealt with 41 Bills on the Order Paper, many of which have been moved by my hon. Friends or myself. In particular, three of the Bills that stand in my name—those on the health of air travellers, which covers deep vein thrombosis; on animal sanctuaries, the proper regulation of which is a matter close to all our hearts; and, lastly and most seriously, on organ donation—have all been objected to by the hon. Member for Poplar and Canning Town (Jim Fitzpatrick), who is a Government Whip.

We are rapidly approaching the 44th Bill on the Order Paper—the Control of Fireworks (No. 2) Bill. Although it may not be as important as the other three of my Bills to which the Government Whip has already objected, it deals with some important safety matters that affect my constituency and those of every other Member. Can you

19 Jul 2002 : Column 638

advise me whether there is any way in which I can prevent the Government from blocking further discussion of that Bill in the cavalier fashion that they have exhibited today?
