Business of the House

Part of the debate – in the House of Commons at 12:00 am on 23rd July 1959.

Alert me about debates like this

Mr. Butler:

I am not prepared to go further today than to say that I will consider the point put to me by the right hon. Member for Lewisham, South and the point put to me by the Leader of the Opposition, but I think that it would be a great mistake to underestimate the expression of regret made by my right hon. Friend in the House. To say that that is totally inadequate, when we know that he intended to express his regret, is to exaggerate the affair to too great an extent.
