HC Deb 09 February 1959 vol 599 c849
32. Mr. Palmer

asked the Paymaster-General when it is expected that the Committee appointed under the Chairmanship of Sir Cecil Weir to inquire into possible joint working between area electricity and gas boards will report.

Sir I. Horobin

I understand from the Chairman that the Committee hopes to complete its Report very shortly.

Mr. Palmer

Can the hon. Gentleman say whether the Committee has been successful in obtaining a broad and varied range of evidence?

Sir I. Horobin

It has finished taking evidence, so I imagine that it is satisfied that it has had all the help it can obtain, including that of the hon. Gentleman.
