§ 76. Sir W. Smithers
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government if, in view of the fact that rent and rates are a determining factor in the cost of living and wage negotiations, he will set up a committee under an independent chairman to examine the bases of such cost and to make recommendations to be made available to hon. Members.
§ Mr. Marples
No. My right hon. Friend does not consider that the appointment of such a committee would serve any useful purpose.
