What steps does the right hon. Gentleman intend to take to restore the control of this House over finance? Will he set up the Estimates Committee, or some new arrangement, or what will be done?
My hon and gallant Friend appears to be unaware of what has been passing in the House. I have already stated that I shall set up the Estimates Committee at once. The notice is not actually on the Paper, but we have been working for that for some days past. As regards the suggestion as to a different kind of Select Committee which I made to the House, the hon. and gallant Gentleman appears to be equally unaware that his Leader immediately stated that it was a mere measure of obstruction.
