I have been asked to reply. The outstanding report of this Committee is now being considered and the result will be contained in the Treasury Minute that will be issued in the normal course early in the next Session.
In view of the fact that these reports reveal a waste of public money and an excess of bureaucrats, may I ask the Lord President if he will set up an independent committee of business men to overcome this further evidence of Socialist mismanagement?
Will the right hon. Gentleman consider making a formal reply to the recommendations and suggestions of these very important Select Committees of Parliament, the Public Accounts Committee and the Select Committee on Estimates, by means of White Papers to be laid on the Table?
