HC Deb 10 February 1931 vol 248 c210
58. Mr. ALBERY

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury how many departmental committees and Royal Commissions have been set up by the present Government, and how many have submitted a report?

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

The appointment of 72 commissions and committees has been announced since the present Government took office. Fourteen of these are standing bodies. Of the remainder 18 have reported.


Can the hon. Member say how many of these reports have been acted upon? Have they all shared the fate of the Simon Commission report?
