45. Mr. De la Bère
asked the Prime Minister whether, in view of the development and extension of the matters dealt with by the Board of Trade, he will consider sub-dividing this Department into three, with someone at the head of each Department directly responsible to the Government, having regard to the impossibility of any one Minister being able adequately to control the expansion which has taken place since the outbreak of hostilities.
Mr. De la Bgre
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that there is urgent need for an overhaul at the Board of Trade? Is he not further aware that many of the systems want recasting now? It is impossible to cope with the various matters now under the existing system.
Can we not expect that some of the existing Ministers may go as we are reaching the end of the wargfor instance, the Ministers of Production and Information?
