§ 38. Mr. LAMBERT
asked the Prime Minister whether, in view of his instruction of the 20th August, 1919, that Ministers who cannot economise must make room for those who can, he intends to insist on the reduction of expenditure 1492 of £175,000,000 in the next financial year, which is the sum the Chancellor of the Exchequer requested the Geddes Committee to aim at?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
The Government will insist upon every feasible reduction of expenditure. The precise amount of that reduction is still under consideration.
§ Mr. LAMBERT
Does the right hon. Gentleman intend to back up the Geddes Committee by insisting that this £175,000,000 shall be saved?
