HC Deb 21 May 1946 vol 423 cc189-90
45. Sir G. Fox

asked the Prime Minister if he will arrange for all Ministers to use standard size paper when sending Members' answers to Parliamentary Questions and to repeat the text of the question as well as state the answer and not refer to it merely as a number.

The Prime Minister (Mr. Attlee)

The present practice of most Ministers is to vary the size of the paper used according to the length of the answer. That seems to me to be sensible and economical. I am arranging that all copies of answers supplied to hon. Members should include the text of the Question.
