§ 40. Mrs. Renée Short
asked the Lord President of the Council if he will make arrangements for a rapid reading course in the House of Commons for Members of Parliament.
§ Mrs. Short
But, in the interests of increasing the productivity of Members of Parliament, some of whom need it, does my right hon. Friend not think that he might reconsider this, in view of the fact that, after only perhaps two or three lessons, reading speed could be doubled, which would be very useful?
§ Mr. Peyton
Would the right hon. Gentleman bear in mind that this is a good deal less urgent now, when much of the reading matter reaches Members of Parliament only when it has become of antiquarian interest?
