asked the Prime Minister on how many days of the week he will answer Oral Questions in the House after the Recess.

Tuesdays and Thursdays are the most convenient days to me, but hon. Members can, of course, put down Questions for any Sitting day, except Friday.

While we welcome the implied assurance that the right hon. Gentleman will still be Prime Minister in the present Administration after the Recess, is he aware that some inconvenience is caused to hon. Members who put Questions down on days other than the two he has mentioned when we get to know only a short while beforehand that the Prime Minister will not be present? I assure the right hon. Gentleman that we are all very interested in his future movements.
