HC Deb 24 June 1919 vol 117 c26
45. Mr. C. WHITE

asked the Prime Minister whether he will set up a Committee, consisting entirely of Members of the House of Commons, to inquire into the necessity for the staffs now in employment in Government offices and Government Departments, and also as to the necessity for the continued occupation of hotels and other buildings now being used by the War Office and other Government Departments?


As the matters referred to in this question are already being dealt with by the War Cabinet Committee on Government Staffs and the War Cabinet Committee on Accommodation, there appears to be no necessity to appoint another Committee as suggested.


Who are the members of that Committee and are there any Members of Parliament upon it?


It is a War Cabinet Committee. I cannot give the names straight away, but I will let my hon. Friend know.
