HC Deb 10 May 1960 vol 623 c200
Mr. Harold Davies

On a point of order, Mr. Speaker. I do not wish to sound too self-important—[Interruption.] —but in view of the importance of Question No. 48 on the Order Paper today, which asks whether the Prime Minister would be prepared to suspend patrol and other flights from British bases before the Summit talks, could not this House have an Answer?

Mr. Speaker

No. The hon. Member for Leek (Mr. Harold Davies) has been here a long time, and knows that that is not possible.

Mr. Davies

Is the Minister prepared to give an answer?

The Secretary of State for the Home Department (Mr. R. A. Butler)

Yes, I am perfectly prepared to give an answer, if the rules permit it, but on this occasion I do not think that they do. I am sorry.
