HC Deb 17 July 1969 vol 787 c179W
Mr. Marples

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer which Departments are represented and by what grades on the Treasury's Procurement Policy Commit tee; how many Treasury members the Committee has; what are their grades; and what staff, by number and grades, is allotted full time to serve the Committee.

Mr. Taverne

The Committee, which comprises only part of the machinery for public purchasing policy, is chaired by a third secretary, and served part-time by an under secretary, an assistant secretary, and subordinate staff. As occasion demands, all purchasing Departments and Departments with an economic or trade interest in purchasing matters are represented, usually at director of contracts level.
