HC Deb 20 June 1979 vol 968 c545W
Mr. Lawrence

asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster if, immediately, he will move to reappoint the Expenditure Committee so that the uncompleted inquiries of the Committee's sub-committees may be concluded.

Mr. St. John-Stevas

I suggest that any further decisions on the Select Committee structure of the House should await the forthcoming debate on the Procedure Committee's proposals. I hope, however, that, whatever the House decides about these proposals, arrangements can be made to ensure that, where feasible, Select Committee inquiries outstanding at the Dissolution of the previous Parliament are completed.
