asked the Lord Privy Seal whether, since no decision of the House on the question of the Draft Mandate for Palestine has yet been given, he will give half a day, in the event of a Resolution being put down dealing with the Mandate, upon which a Division could be taken?

Mr. CHAMBERLAIN:

I would suggest that the most suitable opportunity for such a discussion would be found on the Consolidated Fund Bill.

Does not my hon. Friend realise that if we move a Resolution which has the effect of stopping the Consolidated Fund Bill we are doing great harm to everyone, while we only want to get an expression of the intention of the House of Commons on that particular matter?
