Oral Answers to Questions — Colonial Month, London

– in the House of Commons at 12:00 am on 27th July 1949.

Alert me about debates like this

The following Question stood upon the Order Paper in the name of Mr. W. R. WILLIAMS:

71. To ask the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he will make a report on Colonial Month in London which has come to an end.

Mr. Williams:

On a point of Order, Mr. Speaker. I wonder whether you would be good enough to allow me to ask the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies to reply to Question No. 71, which has not been reached but which seems to me to be rather an important one. My reason for asking is that I understand that the exhibition is coming to an end, and many of us feel that it should not do so.

I am afraid that that is out of Order. If the Minister chooses to answer the Question off his own bat, well and good, but I cannot ask him to do so.
