HC Deb 09 November 1933 vol 281 c317
45. Colonel WEDGWOOD

asked the Prime Minister whether he will afford opportunity to the House to consider the Resolution standing on the Paper in the name of the right hon. Member for Newcastle-under-Lyme (Colonel Wedgwood)?

The PRIME MINISTER (Mr. Ramsay MacDonald)

My right hon. Friend has three Motions on the Order Paper, and I am not quite clear to which one he is referring, but whichever it is I am afraid the answer must be the same—that an opportunity cannot be afforded in the short time remaining before the end of the Session.


I am afraid that I have no recollection of any other Motion on the Paper. The Motion which I have put upon the Paper is one which, I hope, the House will pass unanimously if the Prime Minister will move it. It is in favour of Parliamentary government as opposed to dictatorship. May I ask, arising out of the answer, whether we are to take too seriously his views on dictatorship as expressed at the lunch last Monday?
