§ Mr. R. Carr
asked the Civil Lord of the Admiralty what steps have been taken to review and improve the machinery for estimating and controlling the cost of projects in the material departments of the Admiralty in pursuance of Recommendation 12 of the First Report of the Select Committee on Estimates in Session 1959–60.125W
§ Mr. C. Ian Orr-Ewing
The review of the machinery for controlling Admiralty production expenditure is continuing. This is a comprehensive examination and will of necessity take some time. Some changes in financial procedures have already been introduced, and other measures will be taken as they arise from this study.
