§ 44. Sir JAMES CORY
asked the Prime Minister whether he will consider the desirability of appointing a Select Committee to report on the Government Departments which could be abolished or merged, with a view to still further economy?
§ The PRIME MINISTER (Mr. Bonar Law)
The question to which my hon. Friend refers is already engaging the attention of the Government, and every effort is being made, and will continue to be made, to secure further economy in this direction.
§ Captain WEDGWOOD BENN
Can the right hon. Gentleman say whether he is 866 considering the question of abolishing the Ministry of Transport?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
Oh, yes. It has been arranged that it shall be abolished at a definite time, and we are considering whether it can be hastened.
