Order. I must interrupt the right hon. Gentleman. Standing Order No. 9(3) is quite specific: A Member intending to propose to move the adjournment of the House under the provisions of this order shall give notice to Mr. Speaker by twelve o'clock, if the urgency of the matter is known at that hour. I am afraid that the right hon. Gentleman is precluded from raising it because of that order. The mere fact that a Minister did not make an answer which the right hon. Gentleman hoped might be made, or that the right hon. Gentleman did not get the chance to put a supplementary question, does not bring him within the terms of the Standing Order.
