Might I ask the acting Leader of the House a question on Business? We see in the papers this morning that the Viceroy has returned for consultation, and I feel sure the right hon. Gentleman will agree that it is desirable that the House be kept informed as far as possible of any developments in the Indian situation as they arise. While I do not press for anything today, I should be glad if he will represent to his right bon. Friend the Leader of the House that we shall be glad if a statement can be made at the earliest convenient opportunity.

I can give the right hon. Gentleman an assurance that as soon as a statement can be made, it will be made, and I will communicate the purport of his question to my right hon. Friend the Leader of the House.
