HC Deb 26 February 1930 vol 235 cc2254-5

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether he will set up a Departmental Committee to consider and report upon the present accommodation allotted to various Departments of State and to make suggestions as to a re-allotment in order to effect increased economy and efficiency in the working of such Departments?

The FINANCIAL-SECRETARY to the TREASURY (Mr. Pethick-Lawrence)

The accommodation allotted to Departments is kept under constant review with the object of securing greater economy and efficiency in the public service, and I see no occasion for the appointment of a special committee for this purpose.


Is the Financial Secretary aware that if this committee is set up it will be only the 27th committee set up by the present Government?
