§ 50. Mr. Geoffrey Cooper
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, in view of the Government's decision to reduce Government staff to a minimum to curtail expenditure, he will set up a new working party so that advice from an independent source on appropriate methods can be obtained.
§ Mr. Cooper
Can the Chancellor say if the Organisation and Methods Division come into this matter and if so, could he give consideration to the advisory panel of outside people being augmented for this purpose in respect of such organisations as have a special interest in organisational problems, such as the British Institute of Management and the Institute of Public Administration?
§ Mr. Henry Strauss
Does the right hon. and learned Gentleman consider that working parties are useful in curtailing expenditure and, if so, will he set up one to consider the groundnut scheme?
