§ 62. Mr. JOYNSON-HICKS
asked the Prime Minister whether he will consent to the appointment of a small Committee of this House to inquire into the necessity for further combing out of men of military age in Government Departments?
§ The PRIME MINISTER (Mr. Asquith)
No, Sir, I do not think it would be desirable to adopt this proposal, and I would refer the hon. Member to the speech of my right hon. Friend the Financial Secretary to the Treasury on the Motion for the Adjournment on the 1st instant (OFFICIAL REPORT, Col. 3029), with which I am in entire agreement.
§ Mr. JOYNSON-HICKS
Will the right hon. Gentleman see that the House has an opportunity of considering and debating the very important return which has been issued showing the number of men still in Government employ?
