HC Deb 25 July 1939 vol 350 cc1241-2
46. Mr. Mander

asked the Prime Minister whether, in view of the advisability of keeping Parliament in session during the present international tension, he will consider arranging that a sitting shall be held once each week throughout August and September?

The Prime Minister

No, Sir.

Mr. Mander

In view of the very genuine anxiety throughout the country as to what may happen during the next two months, and the desirability of keeping Parliament in touch with the situation, will the Prime Minister say what alternative proposals he has? Will he consider meeting perhaps once a fortnight?

Colonel Sandeman Allen

Is not the country much more anxious not to have inquisitive questions asked?
