HC Deb 21 October 1937 vol 327 cc22-3
49. Mr. Denman

asked the Prime Minister what action it is proposed to take on the report of the Select Committee on Money Resolutions?

50. Mr. Lambert

asked the Prime Minister whether the Government have considered the report of the Select Committee on Procedure relating to Money Resolutions; and, if so, is he in a position to state what action he proposes to take in regard to its recommendations?

The Prime Minister

The Minutes of Evidence of the Select Committee, which were only published on 1st October, contained Mr. Speaker's memorandum. In view of your expression of opinion, the Government consider that you, Sir, should be consulted on the whole question, and this is now being done. I regret, therefore, that I am not in a position to make a statement to-day, but I hope to be able to do so early in the new Session.
