HC Deb 14 December 1922 vol 159 cc3205-6W
Sir W. de FRECE

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he is now in a position to name a date when the necessary steps will be taken to put into operation the recommendations of the Crown and Government Lands Committee; and if, in view of the urgent need for economy in Government staffs, he will accelerate a decision on this matter?


The answer to the first part of the question is in the negative. As stated in reply to the hon. Member on the 5th instant, the report of the Committee is under consideration, and it is hoped that there will be no avoidable delay in reaching a decision.
