§ 36. Mr. G. LOCKER-LAMPSON
asked the Prime Minister whether the Cabinet has issued instructions to the various Departments to send in their memoranda on the Geddes Report by a certain date?
No, Sir. The Reports of the Geddes Committee have immediately on their receipt by the Government been referred to Cabinet Committees for examination, and the Minister in charge of any Department which comes under review attends the meeting of those Committees in order that he may place his views before them.
§ Mr. LOCKER-LAMPSON
Will the right hon. Gentleman see that the answers by the Departments to the Geddes Report are circulated as soon as possible?
I thought great exception was taken by the hon. Gentleman and others to the Departments expressing any views on so sacrosanct a document!
