asked the Prime Minister whether he is aware that there is a growing demand throughout the country for a general speed-up of the machinery of government as the Ministerial changes are not in themselves sufficient to increase production and to overcome the waste of man-power, money and material which is taking place; and what steps he is taking to meet this demand?
Would my right hon. Friend take further steps to co-ordinate Government Departments and also to try and encourage responsible officers to give decisions without continual reference to committees, in order to obviate the delay which the present procedure seems to entail?
Arising out of the original answer, will the right hon. Gentleman bear in mind that there is throughout the country a feeling that we are being kept back by some frustration in the Government, a frustration and delay about which everybody is complaining?
