HC Deb 21 January 1941 vol 368 c28
61. Mr. Mander

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he is now able to state the decision of the Government with regard to the recommendations in the Fourteenth Report from the Select Committee on National Expenditure, proposing the co-ordination of all the activities of different Government Departments covering the question of camouflage?

The Chancellor of the Exchequer (Sir Kingsley Wood)

This matter is receiving immediate attention, but I am not yet in a position to announce a decision on the report.

Mr. Mander

As the report was made a good many weeks ago, what is the point of saying that it is receiving immediate attention? Has the Chancellor only just read it?

Sir K. Wood

No, Sir. But I hope shortly to send a memorandum on the subject to the Committee.
