§ 59. Sir John Wardlaw-Milne
asked the Secretary of State for India whether he will now make a statement regarding his conversations with the Viceroy during his recent visit to this country.
§ Earl Winterton
Surely if the right hon. Gentleman is going to make a statement upon a matter on which both sides of the House are interested, we should be told that, without question, there will be an opportunity to discuss it? Is he aware that there is a growing distaste of the habit of Ministers making statements without the House having an opportunity of discussing them?
§ Mr. Sorensen
As the statement will be made next Wednesday and there are only two days and part of a day left, is there any likelihood of a Debate taking place?
Is it not of vital importance at this moment that we should discuss this openly in the House? Every question that is asked, which is against the British Government, concerning powers which they do not possess is multiplied and magnified all over the world.
