May I ask whether the statement will be made in answer to a Question, or will it be made on the Adjournment? Will the Prime Minister have regard to the wish expressed on previous occasions in this House to avoid, as far as possible, statements on great matters of public moment being made when it is not possible for any Debate to follow?
