§ 69. Mr. AINSWORTH
asked the Chairman of Ways and Means whether he is aware that there is a difficulty in filling the places of Scottish Members selected to attend Parliamentary Committees sitting in Scotland, and that such vacancies have had to be filled from the extra Parliamentary Panel; and whether he will propose an Amendment of Standing Orders, increasing the number of Scottish Members on the Panel liable to serve in Scotland?
§ The CHAIRMAN of WAYS and MEANS (Mr. Whitley)
Yes, Sir. There has been some difficulty recently in obtaining Members to serve on the Committees in Scotland. I will take into early consideration the valuable suggestion which the hon. Member has made.
