HC Deb 30 November 1948 vol 458 c1813

The following Question stood upon the Order Paper in the name of Mr. PETER THORNEYCROFT:

48. To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer when he proposes to publish the Economic Programme for Great Britain recently submitted to the O.E.E.C. in Paris.

Viscount Hinchingbrooke

In view of the great importance of Question No. 48, and in view of the fact that the right hon. and learned Gentleman is leaving for Paris today to discuss the subject-matter of that Question, may I ask if the answer to it may be given now, Mr. Speaker, by your leave?

Mr. Speaker

I am afraid I have no power in that matter. We took a long time over Questions. This is the day for Scottish Questions, and I have given hon. Members opportunities for asking supplementary questions.
