The terms of the invitation addressed to His Majesty's Government to send a representative or representatives to Washington early in March and of the acceptance of this invitation have already been published. I have no further statement to make.
§ Sir STAFFORD CRIPPS
In view of the statements which the right hon. Gentleman has made in the country on the question of the American War Debt, is he not prepared to make a statement in this House?
§ Sir S. CRIPPS
May I ask whether it is not more courteous to this House to make the statements here than to refer hon. Members to reports in the Press which may not be accurate?
If the House were sitting the statements would, of course, be made here, but the fact that the House is not sitting does not make it impossible for any Minister to make a statement outside.
