HC Deb 06 March 1995 vol 256 c15
34. Mr. Mackinlay

To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster if he will list those Cabinet committees of which he is currently chairman.

Mr. David Hunt

A full list is in the Library of the House.

Mr. Mackinlay

Will the Chancellor tell us how many times the committee on women's issues has met in the past three months? Can he give us three examples of subject matters that the committee is examining?

Mr. Hunt

As the hon. Gentleman knows, it has never been the practice for Governments to publish details of the subjects discussed in Cabinet or in Cabinet committees, but we shall have an opportunity in the course of tomorrow's debate to outline the many successful initiatives that the Government have taken. I shall supply the usual information, but not the information that the hon. Gentleman requests, which has never been supplied.

Forward to
