asked the Prime Minister whether he is aware that there is a widespread impression that his directions as to the avoidance of administrative delays are now largely ignored; and will he consider recirculating the directions to all responsible officers in all Departments?
My right hon. Friend the Prime Minister is not aware of the general impression to which my hon. Friend refers. He does not think that any useful purpose would be served by issuing further general directions. He will, of course, not hesitate to have inquiry made into any specific complaints which are brought to his notice.
