HC Deb 14 March 1951 vol 485 c1538
51. Mr. Fitzroy Maclean

asked the Minister of Defence whether he will make a statement on operations in Korea.

Mr. Churchill

Does the Minister intend to make one of the periodic statements which he makes from time to time to the House? If so, would it not be better that it should be made at the end of Question Time?

The Minister of Defence (Mr. Shinwell)

I would put that observation into the category of intelligent anticipation. I have not yet answered the Question. Perhaps the right hon. Gentleman will not mind if I first answer the Question. The answer is that I hope to make a further statement before the Easter Recess.

Mr. Churchill

I gladly make my acknowledgment to the right hon. Gentleman.
