NORTHERN IRELAND – MANDELSON INSULT – 13 March 2000

Dr Julian Lewis: On a point of order, Madam Speaker. Is there any mechanism whereby we can further the purpose of the point of order raised by my hon. Friend the Member for Buckingham (Mr Bercow) about the outrageous remarks of the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland [Peter Mandelson], and summon the right hon. Gentleman to the Chamber? If he refuses to come we could at least then express our view: so far from the targets of his wrath being "chinless wonders", he will have exposed himself to the charge of being a gutless windbag.
