Point of Order

Andrew RT Davies raised a point of order regarding declarations of interests.

The Deputy Presiding Officer ruled that it is up to Members to take full responsibility for making a declaration when one is needed.
The register of interests is not a partisan plaything, and should not be used in a rhetorical way in the Chamber.  If you think a breach has been made, that is a more serious matter and you should refer it to the Commissioner for Standards.
