I have to ask the leave of the House to be absent on Monday, 20th April, and the following day. I have been invited, together with the Presidents of the Parliaments of all the Member States of the Council of Europe, to a ceremonial sitting of the Consultative Assembly which will take place at 6 p.m. on Monday, 20th April, in Strasbourg, to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the signature of the Statute setting up the Council of Europe. I am advised that I should be present on this occasion, and so, if the House grants me leave. I propose to accept the invitation.

Hon. Members:

Hear, hear.
