There has in the past been a fairly ready demand for Viscounts but my help has not been asked in the disposal of these.

Mr. Gresham Cooke:

While thanking my right hon. Friend for his encouraging news about these 15 Viscounts that have been returned home, may I ask if he is aware that there is another viscount hovering around this Chamber, and that he may require some assistance to get to his home base?
