HC Deb 28 April 1976 vol 910 c390
Mr. Marten

On a point of order, Mr. Speaker. Yesterday, I asked whether we were to have a statement from the Chancellor of the Exchequer on his ministerial meeting in Brussels. I asked for that statement because, as I understand it, our Common Market partners agreed with the Government's economic policy in today's situation, whereas the Opposition in this House disagree with it and, therefore, with our partners in the Common Market. The principle of democracy here is that, if we get a conflict between the two parties or between Governments in the Common Market, we have a debate, and that is why I ask for a statement. Have you had notice of the intention of the Chancellor of the Echequer to make a statement?

Mr. Speaker

I congratulate the hon. Gentleman on getting in order. The answer is "No, Sir."
