I wish to ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether his attention has been directed to the fact that special and exclusive information was communicated to The Times as to the Cabinet Council originally arranged to be held on Friday last and as to the principal business to be laid before that Cabinet Council; whether he has found out through what channel that information reached The Times, and whether he can assure the House that similar leakage will not occur in the future.
