§ The following Questions stood upon the Order Paper:
§ 19. Mr. Anthony Greenwood
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he will make a statement on the present position reached in the Korean truce discussions.
§ 22. Mr. A. Henderson
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he will make a further statement on the truce negotiations in Korea.
§ 26. Mr. Donnelly
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he is in a position to make a further statement on the Korean truce talks.
§ 28. Mr. A. J. Irvine
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he will make a further statement upon the Korean truce negotiations.
§ Mr. Wyatt
On a point of order. I put Question No. 23 to the Prime Minister because we were asked to put down Questions on Korea to the Prime Minister. These Questions have now been transferred. While the Prime Minister has the right to transfer Questions if he pleases, 869 would it not be more convenient for the House, Sir, if we knew for certain whether we were to put down a Question to the Prime Minister or to the Foreign Minister?
§ Mr. Speaker
That is not a point for me. I have frequently dealt with this matter and have said that Departments are responsible for the transfer of Questions.
§ The Lord Privy Seal (Mr. Harry Crookshank)
A statement will be made on the Korean situation at the end of Questions. There are personal reasons why the Chancellor of the Exchequer asked to be excused attendance today.
§ Sir H. Williams
May I ask whether the statement in answer to these Questions will be made on a Motion for the Adjournment?
