§ The Attorney-General (Sir Donald Somervell)
With the consent of my hon. Friend the Member for Holland with Boston (Mr. Butcher) I should like to correct a small mistake I made in a speech earlier in our proceedings, when we were discussing the possibility of a candidate being elected to this House while he was overseas, and I gave as an example my right hon. Friend the Deputy Prime Minister. He was sitting next to me, and I thought he had told me that he was away for the Election but I misheard him. What in fact he said was that he was away for nomination day but was in this country in time for the Election. I hope it did not mislead anybody, because there were other examples I could have given, but the example I chose was inaccurate in that I said he was away at the time of the Election.
§ It being the hour appointed for the interruption of Business, the Motion for the Adjournment of the House lapsed, without Question put.
