§ The Prime Minister (Mr. Chamberlain)
I understand that this inquiry is being made by an informal committee of 1738 officials representing the Departments concerned. No formal appointments were made to it or specific terms of reference laid down.
§ The Prime Minister
The Departments are the Service Departments, the Ministry of Pensions, the Ministry of Labour, the Unemployment Assistance Board and the Treasury. So far as I know, there are no women on the committee.
As it was the officials who made the muddle would it not be better to have some outside person?
