May I ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer when the Finance Bill will be in the hands of hon. Members, seeing that in former years it has always been circulated in the first week, and the time for the Debate is now approaching?

I hope it will be in the hands of hon. Members early next week.

That only gives hon. Members a week to consider it. It has always been circulated earlier.

I think that a week is the usual time.
