It was in order to meet the wishes of the House that we proposed to suspend the Rule, and I hope it will be agreeable for the House to conclude the Debate not later than two hours beyond the ordinary time. My right hon. Friend the Chancellor of the Exchequer will endeavour to catch your eye, Mr. Speaker, in time to conclude his speech at that hour.
Regarding to-day's procedure, the right hon. and learned Gentleman has told the House when he hopes that the Debate will end; can he give us any indication of the Government's hopes as to when it will begin?
