Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that the Debate will last only from four o'clock until a quarter past eight, and that therefore a great number of Members will not have the opportunity of speaking? Will he answer some of the questions now?
That proposal has not been accepted. It is the subject of an inquiry which is about to be commenced. Of course, I am very sorry that we shall not have more time tomorrow, but I understand that we can go on after eleven o'clock if the House so desires, and I shall not shirk my part.
May I point out to the hon. Member that the right hon. Gentleman has answered definitely the question put on the Paper. He has given the exact figures which were asked for in the question. It is only the arguments on the question that he has declined to answer to-day.
