HC Deb 12 May 1915 vol 71 c1642
51. Mr. BOOTH

asked the Prime Minister whether, in view of the present War and in view of the steps necessary to be taken in order to grapple with the rearrangement of industry and social life consequent upon a prolonged struggle, he will consider the desirability of admitting into the ranks of Ministers leading Members of the various political parties in this House?


The Government are greatly indebted to the leading Members of all parties for suggestions and assistance of certain specific subjects. The step suggested by my hon. Friend is not in contemplation, and I am not aware that it would meet with general assent.
