HC Deb 23 February 1932 vol 262 c224W

asked the Prime Minister whether, with a view to economy, he will consider the abolition of the office either of the Secretary of State for the Colonies or of the Secretary of State for Dominion. Affairs, and the reversion to the previous arrangement under which a single Minister controlled both Departments?


I would refer my hon. Friend to the answer given by the Prime Minister on 18th November last in reply to a question by the hon. Member for Spennymoor (Mr. Batey).
