HC Deb 03 July 1940 vol 362 c846
Mr. Lees-Smith

(by Private Notice) asked the Lord Privy Seal when the Prime Minister will make his next statement on the war situation?

Mr. Attlee

My right hon. Friend the Prime Minister will make a statement tomorrow on the war situation. The statement will be made on a Motion for the Adjournment, and the House will have an opportunity for a Debate if desired. In this event the Debate on agriculture announced for tomorrow will be postponed till next week.

Sir T. Moore

Will it be in secret?

Mr. Attlee

That is a matter for the House to decide.

Mr. Cocks

Is not the Lord Privy Seal aware that at the present time this is one place where we must be free? We do not want a Secret Session.
