With regard to the first point which the hon. Member raises, on 21st May, 1940, just after the National Government came into power, I made a very full statement and gave a Ruling with regard to the position of Members on the Front Opposition Bench, and to that statement, at the present at any rate, I have nothing to add. As regards the second point which the hon. Member raises, I think it would be best to leave it in my hands as to the selection of speakers who catch my eye.
