May I ask the Lord Privy Seal whether any papers in regard to the Hague Conference will he circulated to Members in time for to-morrow's Debate?

Mr. CHAMBERLAIN:

Yes, Sir. A Command Paper has been laid, and copies are now available in the Vote Office. Full circulation will be made to-morrow. The Paper could not be got ready for circulation this morning, and, therefore, copies have been placed in the Vote Office, to give Members an opportunity of earlier perusal if they wish it.

Captain BENN:

Will there be a preliminary statement by a spokesman of the Government in the Debate?

Mr. CHAMBERLAIN:

Yes, Sir. My hon. Friend the Secretary to the Overseas Trade Department will open the Debate with a general statement.

Mr. CHAMBERLAIN:

The Prime Minister may be tempted to break his silence.
