POINT OF ORDER – MPS' HOME ADDRESSES – 8 July 2008

Dr Julian Lewis: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. Is there any way in which, within the rules, I can convey the House's congratulations to Sir Igor Judge, who has just been appointed Lord Chief Justice? As you will recall, Sir Igor was one of the judges who decided that MPs' home addresses should be made publicly available. Does not this promotion illustrate the fact that one silly mistake need not wreck a promising professional career?

[Mr Speaker: I think the hon. Gentleman is trying to draw me into an argument. As for his first point about congratulations, he could always table an Early-Day Motion, at which he is very expert nowadays.]
