74. Mr. Marples

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what changes in the method of presenting Government accounts the Government proposes to make, in view of the Report of the Committee on the Form of Public Accounts, Command Paper No. 7969.

Sir S. Cripps

As I explained in my reply to my hon. Friend, the Member for Stockton-on-Tees (Mr. Chetwynd), on 20th June, this Report deals with a wide variety of topics, many of them of a highly technical and complex nature. A thorough examination of the various recommendations is being undertaken, but it will necessarily be a very considerable time before I am in position to make a further statement.
