The right hon. Gentleman will realise that the date of the election is vital to the consideration of the business of the House. We are told that we are to have a Debate on foreign affairs. We have also matters which we wish to raise, notably on the question of the unemployed and the question of unemployment. I am asking the right hon. Gentleman whether we shall have time for the discussion of these subjects before the House is prorogued. We intend to put down a Vote of Censure in order that this may be discussed before the House rises. It is clear that if the right hon. Gentleman's date, which is not disclosed yet, is to be at the end of this week, we are likely to be shut out of any consideration of these matters.
