§ 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?
§ Mr. McKENNA
Sir Charles Bine Renshaw, the first chairman of the Scottish War Savings Committee, resigned on 1714 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.
