HC Deb 27 February 1951 vol 484 c1886
12. Mr. Grimond

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland when the Committee presently investigating the financial relationship between England and Scotland is likely to complete its report.

Miss Herbison

The Committee on Scottish Financial and Trade Statistics has been meeting regularly and I understand that it is making good progress. I am not yet able to say when its report will be ready.

Mr. Grimond

Is there any hope that we may have the report before the Budget may I ask?

Miss Herbison

None at all.

Colonel Gomme-Duncan

Has there been any change in the personnel of this committee, since other appointments have more recently been made?

Miss Herbison

That is another question.

Sir Herbert Williams

Can the hon. Lady assure the House that the committee will leave no stone unturned?
