§ Mr. BRIDGEMAN
asked the Prime Minister if he is aware that no representative of the Government attended officially during any part of the discussion of the Margarine Bill in Committee B; and if he will use his good offices with the Ministers responsible for the various Departments of State to ensure that the Departments concerned shall be officially represented in Grand Committee in future?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
I have been informed that no official representative of the Government attended the Grand Committee referred to by the hon. Member. It is certainly my wish that the Departments concerned in the subject-matter of a Bill shall be officially represented when it is under consideration by a Grand Committee. I believe that there was some doubt in this particular case which (if any) of the Departments was so concerned.
