HC Deb 04 August 1919 vol 119 cc21-2
55. Sir J. HOPE

asked the Prime Minister when he will be able to announce the steps which the Government propose to take in order to give effect to the Resolution of this House on 4th June that a Parliamentary body should be appointed to consider and report upon Federal Devolution?


I am sure the House will be glad to know that Mr. Speaker has consented to act as Chairman of the Parliamentary body, and I hope that it may be possible to announce its composition at an early date.

Colonel YATE

Will the names be announced before the Recess?


I hope so, and I expect so.
