Order. The right hon. Gentleman must allow me to be quite firm and definite with him. On what he said, certainly I do not think that I should allow the matter to be raised under Standing Order No. 9 on a telephone call. I should need to know much more about it. I had no notice of it at all until about twenty-five minutes past three. My answer must certainly be "No". I am not prepared to disrupt the business of the House on a matter on which it would appear that the Government have not at the moment any immediate responsibility. It is a matter which can be raised by Private Notice Question tomorrow, and I shall consider it then.
