HC Deb 28 February 1966 vol 725 c234W
Mr. Ridley

asked the Minister of Technology why he did not inform the House of Commons of the setting up of the Maddock Committee.

Mr. Cousins

It is not the practice to inform the House about working parties set up in the normal course of Departmental business.

Mr. Dean

asked the Minister of Technology if he will give the date on which the Maddock Committee was set up, its terms of reference, the names of its members, and the dates of its meetings.

Mr. Cousins

I would refer the hon. Member to the Answer I gave today to the hon. Member for Cirencester and Tewkesbury (Mr. Ridley).
