Motion made, That this House do now adjourn.—[ Mr. Short.]
Order. I gather that something is wrong. We must have an explanation.
On a point of order. Was it not intimated to you, Mr. Speaker, that I requested your permission to answer Question No. 71?
I apologise to the right hon. Gentleman. The message has not reached me. I am sure that the House will allow the right hon. Gentleman to Answer the Question.
