If there is any general desire that such a statement should be made, I am prepared to make one on a convenient occasion.

Is not my right hon. and learned Friend going to answer the rest of the Question?

I think we had better await the statement if one is proposed to be made.

Does the right hon. and learned Gentleman propose to make a statement, because I think it would be the desire of the House that he should make one very soon?

If representations are made through the usual channels, may I take it that the right hon. and learned Gentleman is quite prepared to initiate a Debate?
