Alert me about debates like this

Mr. Butler:

My right hon. Friend's intention was to express his regret to the Select Committee. As I understand, the right hon. Gentleman does not think that that is a sufficient expression of regret. No doubt there are other methods of replying to the Select Committee, and if I can discuss the matter with my right hon. Friend I shall be only too glad to do so, because I know that he does not wish in any way to insult the honour or dignity of a Select Committee of this House.
