45. Mr. De la Bère
asked the Prime Minister whether he is now in a position to make a statement regarding the Government's intentions as to prolonging the life of this Parliament beyond 1943?
§ The Deputy Prime Minister (Mr. Attlee)
No, Sir. My hon. Friend will appreciate that I cannot at this date forecast the conditions likely to prevail when the present life of Parliament expires in November.
Mr. De la Bère
Is it not a fact that there was a tinge of unrest about the political atmosphere last week, and is my right hon. Friend aware that the public dislike these political controversies while the war is on?
