HC Deb 15 July 1941 vol 373 cc485-6W
Mr. Salt

asked the Lord President of the Council what is the relationship between the Engineering Advisory Committee and the Scientific Advisory Committee; and what are the main lines of action on which the Engineering Committee has been asked to proceed up to date?

Sir J. Anderson

Each of these Committees meets under the chairmanship of my Noble Friend the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster, and reports to me as Lord President of the Council for the information of the Cabinet, and I myself see all the papers and minutes of both Committees. In reply to the second part of the Question, I would refer my hon. Friend to the terms of reference which have been published and upon which the Committee are at present engaged.
