I am obliged to the hon. Member. I must repeat that these are political matters which are not for me to decide. I have to take what I have before me. All I can tell the Committee is that we are in order in going on with what we are doing. I should like to think that the Committee has enough confidence in me to believe that I speak absolutely bona fide when I say that I believe that to be the case. I be- lieve that to be the case because we would be wrong not to go forward with work which we were instructed to do by the House itself.
