§ 10. Mr. David James
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will arrange for the publication of a monthly cumulative list specifying the various matters referred to Departmental and other officially appointed bodies upon which the Government have made a recent decision, which have been reported upon but are awaiting the Government's decision, and which have not yet been reported upon, respectively.
§ Mr. James
Is my hon. Friend aware that even the keenest student of politics finds it rather hard to remember at the drop of a hat the whereabouts and contents of the various Jack, Wolfenden, Scott Henderson, Albemarle, Roberts, 616 Philips, Radnor, Streatfeild, Romer and other Reports, and that such a document might be a convenience for hon. and right hon. Members on both sides of the House?
§ Sir E. Boyle
Even so keen a student of politics as my hon. Friend might be a little bemused by the accounts of progress of advisory bodies of a central and national character which, even in 1958, totalled 850 and now probably total even more.
