§ MR. HOULT
I beg to ask Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he can now announce the complete formation of the Committee appointed to consider the position and duties of the various Government Departments, with the view of consolidating the commercial and trade interests of the country in one Department, in view of the fact that it is over four months since the inquiry was promised.
§ *THE CHANCELLOR OF THE EXCHEQUER (Mr. RITCHIE,) Croydon
The Committee has been completed by the addition of the name of Mr. Emmott, Member for Oldham. I hope the Committee will commence their work at once and that the inquiry will not be a long one.
