HC Deb 11 May 1943 vol 389 c489
Mr. Eden

I beg to inform the House that it will be necessary for me to spy Strangers shortly so that I may make a statement to the House which the Government consider it inadvisable to make in public. When we come out of Secret Session a statement will be made in public on the war situation.

Notice taken, that Strangers were present.

Whereupon Mr. SPEAKER, pursuant to Standing Order No. 89, put the Question, "That Strangers be ordered to withdraw."

Question agreed to.

Strangers withdrew accordingly.

The House subsequently resumed in Public Session.
