55. Sir EDGAR CHATFIELD-CLARKE
asked the Prime Minister whether he can state, in view of the late sittings impairing the health of the Members of the House, if he is prepared to summon Parliament next year in the middle of January instead of the middle of February so as to give adequate time to finance and the Estimates?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
On very few occasions this Session it would have been necessary to ask the House to sit after 11 p.m. had it not been for interruption of business over which the Government had no control. I cannot agree to the hon. Member's suggestion.
