I have heard two hon. Members on this side state that they have postponed questions until Wednesday next at the request of the Prime Minister. I shall be glad to know if that indicates that we are not to have a twelve o'clock sitting in order to deal with the Motion for Adjournment?
§ Lord HUGH CECIL
Can the Prime Minister say how late it is proposed to keep the House sitting to-night?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
I am afraid I cannot make myself heard, but I will try. The idea of putting down the Motion for the suspension of the Eleven o'clock Rule was that we might sit until twelve or half-past twelve, but not that we should have a prolonged sitting. I cannot commit myself to the exact hour.
