POINT OF ORDER – DEBATE ON TRIDENT REPLACEMENT – 18 November 2010

Dr Julian Lewis: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. Is there any way in which, within the rules of order, I can place on record the fact that a request for a debate with a vote on the nuclear deterrent should not really be referred back to a debate on the strategic defence and security review, from which the deterrent was excluded and on which there was no vote at all?

[Mr Speaker: The short answer is no, there is not, but the hon. Gentleman has naughtily done it anyway – a fact of which I think he is intimately conscious.]
