HC Deb 30 October 1945 vol 415 cc232-3
45. Miss Rathbone

asked the Prime Minister when he expects tobe able to make a statement on Palestine; and if he can give an assurance that no irrevocable decisions will be taken without the House having the opportunity of a full Debate.

The Prime Minister (Mr. Attlee)

I am not yet in a position to say when the statement will be made, but I can assure the House that it will be made as soon as possible. In regard to the second part of the Question, I would refer the hon. Lady to the reply I gave to the right hon. and Noble Lord the Member for Horsham (Earl Winterton) on 9th October.

Miss Rathbone

In view of the importance of the subject, can the Prime Minister say whether that was an assurance that there would be an opportunity for a full Debate?

The Prime Minister

I can send the hon. Lady the reply. It was quite clear.
