§ Motion made, and Question proposed, That this House do now adjourn.— [Mr. Barber.]
§ 10.25 p.m.
§ The Prime Minister (Sir Anthony Eden)
The right hon. Gentleman can be assured that the Government will give full weight at once to a decision taken by this House on a free vote, but I must add that at the earliest opportunity we will make a considered statement as to the consequences which will flow from that. The House will realise that it will be necessary for us to consider that statement for a day or two. However, I can assure the House that it will be the wish of the Government, this vote having been taken in this way, that there should be no undue delay.
