I propose shortly to spy Strangers and ask the House to go into Secret Session in order that I may make a statement which it is inadvisable to make in public. When we come out of Secret Session and before proceeding with the Orders of the Day, my right hon. Friend the Deputy Prime Minister will move a Resolution of thanks to His Majesty's Forces and the Forces of our Allies for the victory in North Africa.

Notice taken, that Strangers were present.

Whereupon Mr. SPEAKER, pursuant to Standing Order No. 89, put the Question, "That Strangers be ordered to withdraw."

Question agreed to.

Strangers withdrew accordingly.

The House subsequently resumed in Public Session.
