On the Adjournment yesterday, while drawing attention to facts concerning Prince Paul of Yugoslavia, I was called to Order by you, Sir, for a technical reason, and, according to the OFFICIAL REPORT, I said: I bow to your Ruling, and in that even I shall not continue on the lines to which you have drawn my attention."—[OFFICIAL REPORT, 17th November, 1942; col. 315, Vol. 385.] By a printer's error the "t" was left out of "event." The sentence should read: I bow to your Ruling and, in that event, I shall not continue on the lines to which you have drawn my attention. I point that out, because I do not want it thought for a moment that in any circumstances I should be disrespectful to you, Sir.
