Oral Answers to Questions — British Army. – in the House of Commons on 17th March 1942.
Alert me about debates like this
asked the Prime Minister the respective duties of the Joint Patronage Secretaries to the Treasury, and whether they share offices at 12, Downing Street, or elsewhere?
The principal duties of the Joint Parliamentary Secretaries to the Treasury, who share offices at 12, Downing Street, are to make all arrangements necessary for the conduct of Parliamentary Business.
May I ask whether the two Patronage Secretaries will be working in close collaboration in future, or whether they will continue to gaze at each other from opposite sides of the House?
I am not aware that gazing at each other prevents collaboration.
Is there any greater need for two Patronage Secretaries than for two Prime Ministers?
As they will be both ends of the usual channels, would it not save time if they sat together?
