asked the Prime Minister whether, in order to expedite the work of Standing Committees, he will propose to this House the adoption of the recommendation made by the Select Committee on Procedure in 1932 that power to select amendments should be given to all chairmen of Standing Committees?

I can only refer my hon. and gallant Friend to the answer which I gave on the 29th January last in reply to a question on this subject by my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for Gainsborough (Captain Crookshank).
