§ 45. Mr. Whitehead
asked the Lord President of the Council what plans he has for strengthening the office of the Leader of the Opposition.
§ Mr. Edward Short
This is one aspect of the Government's proposals for financial assistance to Opposition parties to which I referred in my statement of 19th December. A Government motion covering this matter is at present on the Order Paper. It will, I hope, be brought before the House in due course.
