72. Sir P. HARRIS

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many new Ministries have been created since the War up to date; what are their names; and what is the estimated cost?


Since 1918 no new Ministries have been established but the following new Departments have been created:

  • Forestry Commission
  • Import Duties Advisory Committee
  • Commissioner for Special Areas
  • Unemployment Assistance Board.
In addition, the Dominions Office and the Ministries of Mines and Transport, which previously existed in nucleus as parts of other Ministries, were set up as separate Ministries. The hon. Member will find details of the present cost of these Departments set out in current Estimates.
