HC Deb 04 June 1931 vol 253 c356

I have to ask the indulgence of the House for a moment. The University of Cambridge has done me the honour of proposing to confer a degree upon me to-morrow. The proposal is, no doubt, due to the Office to which the House has called me. I ask the permission of the House to be at Cambridge to-morrow, 5th June.

The House signified its assent, for which Mr. SPEAKER returned his thanks.
