Yesterday in Parliament

Just before

Prime Minister’s Questions


the Speaker,

John Bercow,

explained to the assembled MPs that there was an error in the order paper.

He said that this


would be rectified in the library copy of the order paper.



A thing to be corrected, typically an error in a printed book.

(Oxford English Dictionary)

Early 19th century: Latin, neuter gerundive of corrigere ‘bring into order’



Well, I’ve learned a new word and I hope you have too!
