§ EARL JOWITT
My Lords, I beg to ask Her Majesty's Government the Question of which I have given them private notice. The Question is as follows:To ask Her Majesty's Government whether they have any statement to make with regard to the international situation in the Far East.
THE MINISTER OF STATE FOR FOREIGN AFFAIRS (THE MARQUESS OF READING)
My Lords, I understand that the Leader of the Opposition is asking a similar Question of my right honourable friend the Foreign Secretary in another place. Therefore, with the assent of the noble and learned Earl, and with the permission of the House, I would ask leave to intervene during the subsequent debate in order to make a statement simultaneously with that made by my right honourable friend in another place.
