asked the Prime Minister whether he can make any statement on the European situation?

The House will be aware from the speech that I made in Birmingham on Friday of the serious view which His Majesty's Government take of the events of the last week. The situation created by these events is engaging the urgent attention of His Majesty's Government, who are also in communication with other Governments.

May I take it that the Prime Minister will make a full statement to the House at the earliest opportunity?

Can the Prime Minister say with how many other Governments he has communicated?

Division No. 69.]
