HC Deb 17 February 1944 vol 397 cc358-9W
Major Lyons

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer the names of the members and the secretary of the official side of the National Council for the Administrative and Legal Departments of the Civil Service.

Sir J. Anderson

Under war conditions the formal business of the National Whitley Council is conducted largely through sub-committees specially appointed for the purpose. In these circumstances, it has not been thought necessary, during the war, to revise the composition of the Official Side, and I am afraid that the publication of the names of the Official Side as constituted in 1939 would be largely meaningless.
