One of them, as stated by my right hon. Friend the Minister without Portfolio in reply to a Question on 10th June, is the Inter-Departmental Committee which is making a comprehensive survey of social insurance and allied services. The other, as stated by my right hon. Friend the Minister of Labour and National Service in reply to a Question on 12th June, is the committee which, by arrangement with the heads of the Service Departments, is examining the employment of skilled men in the Forces.
