§ Major Vernon
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what are the terms of reference of the committee recently set up under Sir John Clapham to discuss the finance of economic and social research; 1702W from what organisations and persons this committee has taken evidence; whether evidence can still be submitted; and whether its findings will be made public in due course.
§ Mr. Dalton
The terms of reference are:
" To consider whether additional provision is necessary for research into economic and social questions."
The committee have taken a good deal of evidence both from organisations and individuals, and are now preparing their Report. I cannot yet say whether this will be published.
