Are we to assume that the Government have completely rejected the idea of separating these two quite different functions, and, if that is so, will the right hon. Gentleman say so definitely?
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that the head of the Treasury is also head of the Establishments Division of the Treasury, and that the Establishments Division exercises very close control over all kinds of staff questions in all the Departments? Is he not further aware that Treasury control is regarded by administrators and staff alike as improperly vested in that Department and that it ought to be vested elsewhere?
