§ 47. Mr. TREVELYAN
asked the Prime Minister whether he can give the House an assurance that, so long as the War continues, the intervals between meetings of Parliament shall be of no longer duration than six weeks; and that should circumstances arise calling for any suspension of civil rights or curtailment of civil liberty Parliament will meet immediately?
§ The PRIME MINISTER (Mr. Asquith)
Without specifying any period, I think it will be both necessary and desirable for Parliament to meet at short intervals during the continuance of the War. In answer to the second part of the question, I am not aware to what contingencies my hon. Friend refers.
§ 57. Sir WILLIAM BYLES
asked the Prime Minister whether he can now indicate to the House when the Session is likely to end?
