HC Deb 30 April 1968 vol 763 c174W
Q7. Mr. Shinwell

asked the Prime Minister, whether, to ensure that hon. Members are able to serve the House of Commons to the utmost capacity, he will move to increase the number of specialist committees including, in particular, defence, foreign affairs and research into industrial expansion.

The Prime Minister

My right hon. Friend will know that the number of specialist committees has been considerably increased in recent years. I understand that for this year, however, we are near the limit of the number of committees which the resources of the House will support.
