HC Deb 12 November 1945 vol 415 c1744
48. Mr. Garry Allighan

asked the Prime Minister whether he will state the names of the Chairman and members of the Manpower Committee.

Mr. H. Morrison

No, Sir. The arrangements made by the Cabinet for the discharge of the business for which it is collectively responsible are matters for the Cabinet itself and are not customarily disclosed.

Mr. Garry Allighan

Will the Lord President of the Council say whether this Committee is entirely advisory, or can take decisions in regard to matters?

Mr. Morrison

To answer that would be a breach of the doctrine to which I have just referred.
