Does the Prime Minister realise that if matters are left as they are the Debate to-day will be thrown into confusion? Is the Debate to be limited to foreign affairs, or will it range over matters of domestic interest? Will the Opposition be expected to confine their speeches to foreign affairs, or will they be justified in dealing with such matters as unemployment and other questions of much interest to hon. Members and their constituents? Hon. Members who speak to-day will apparently be excluded from dealing with any of these matters before the Dissolution. That is quite improper, and therefore it seems to me that if the Debate is to be confined to foreign affairs it is most necessary that the Prime Minister should say now that there will be another opportunity for hon. Members to deal with these other matters.
