HC Deb 13 March 1947 vol 434 c1506
Mr. Speaker

There is one notice I should like to read out to hon. Members before we get on to the Business. I would like to remind hon. Members that a reception is being held in the Royal Gallery at 4.30 tomorrow, Friday, by the Lord Chancellor and myself, to meet the delegation of the Supreme Soviet of the U.S.S.R., who are expected to arrive here this evening at the invitation of both Houses of Parliament, and to whom I extend on behalf of the House a cordial welcome. [HON. MEMBERS: "Hear, hear."] I hope that as many Members of the House of Commons as possible will be present at the reception.

Mr. M. Philips Price

Would it be permissible on this important and indeed historic occasion for Members of the House to bring ladies with them?

Mr. Speaker

I certainly say that it would add to the occasion if Members who have wives or daughters would bring them. Lady Members might perhaps bring their husbands or sons.
