We have at the head of affairs—I will repeat this for the benefit of the hon. Member for Buckingham (Mr. Maxwell)—a discredited and distrusted political manoeuvrer, who, by insisting on going on with this divisive Measure, has once again put party before country. The Bill will no doubt be passed by a large majority, but many hon. Members who intend to vote for it must surely be ashamed that, in this hour of national crisis, they and their party have failed to rise to the level of events.
