§ Mr. W. R. PEEL
asked the Prime Minister whether, in view of the recent statements of prominent Members of the Cabinet, it was the policy of the Government to shorten the period during which the suspensory veto of the Second Chamber operated under the Parliament Act, and to enable the will of the House of Commons to override the views of the Second Chamber within a less period than two years?
§ Mr. W. PEEL
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that the statement was made by his colleague, the Foreign Secretary? Does he allow his colleagues to make important statements of this description without his sanction?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
I read them to the best of my ability. There is nothing in my right hon. Friend's speech which in the least degree bears out the suggestion in the question.
