The Lord President of the Council and Leader of the House of Commons
(Mr. Francis Pym)

With permission, Mr. Speaker, I should like to make a short business statement.

The business on Wednesday 7 April will now be a debate on the Falkland Islands, on a motion for the Adjournment of the House.

I thank the right hon. Gentleman for his statement. It was clearly the desire of the House on Saturday that there should be a further debate at the earliest possible moment. However, in the light of the announcements made today, can the right hon. Gentleman tell the House who will be speaking for the Government in the debate?

I cannot answer that matter of detail at this moment. I assure the right hon. Gentleman that the Government's position will be put clearly and in a forthright way, as no doubt will that of the Opposition.
