HC Deb 01 November 1916 vol 86 cc1713-4

The following question stood on the Paper in the name of Mr. WATT:

69. To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, with reference to the War Savings Committee set up in Scotland, whether the first chairman appointed to that Committee has since resigned; and, if so, will he state the reason for such resigning?


In asking No. 69, may I say that this question also has been subedited.


Sir Charles Bine Renshaw, the first chairman of the Scottish War Savings Committee, resigned on accepting the appointment of chairman of the Board of Referees in connection with the Excess Profits Duty, as he felt that it would be impracticable to discharge the duties of both offices at the same time.
