That this House notes with concern that once again there is no Defence Spokesman in the newly-elected Shadow Cabinet; condemns the Labour Party's apparent lack of interest in this vital subject; and calls on the Leader of the Labour Party to tell the House whether, in the event of his becoming Prime Minister, he would appoint a Defence Secretary with no experience of the subject or whether the Defence Secretary would cease to be full a member of the Cabinet.
