Caretaker Government - 28 March 1979

    Mr James Callaghan:  Mr Speaker, now that the House has declared itself, we shall take our case to the country. Tomorrow I shall propose to Her Majesty that Parliament be dissolved as soon as essential business can be cleared up, and then Ishall announce as soon as may be - and that will be as soon as possible - the date of Dissolution, the date of the election and the date of meeting of the new Parliament.

    Mrs Margaret Thatcher:  As the Government no longer have authority to carry on business without the agreement of the Opposition, I make it quite clear that we shall facilitate any business which requires the agreement of the Opposition so that the Dissolution can take place at the very earliest opportunity and the uncertainty ended.
