§ Mr. Hugh Jenkins
asked the Lord President of the Council whether he will take steps under Standing Order No. 117 to secure an earlier meeting of the House if during the Recess the United States Government authorises its forces in Vietnam to bomb the dykes in North Vietnam or undertakes any other escalatory action.
§ Mr. Crossman
The Government will certainly represent to Mr. Speaker that the House should be recalled under Standing Order No. 117 if at any time during the Recess it considers that such action is justified by a change in the international situation.
