§ 16. Mr. Harper
asked the Minister of Public Building and Works if he has now reviewed the number of his Department's consultative committee for the building industry; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Harper
I will certainly do that. But it is a rather surprising answer when we recall that the right hon. Gentleman and his right hon. and hon. Friends, when in opposition, constantly chided us that, by one stroke of the pen, they would abolish all these consultative committees. What has induced them to change their minds?
