§ 45. Mr. CHARLES DUNCAN
asked the Prime Minister whether he will state the present position as regards the fourth Report of the Royal Commission on the Civil Service; and whether a Treasury Minute on the subject will shortly be laid upon the Table of the House?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
Any change involving extensive reorganisation of 1316 Government Departments is, unfortunately, impracticable at the moment, but consideration of the Report by His Majesty's Government will proceed as far as circumstances permit. I can hold out no prospect that the recommendations of the Royal Commission in general can be dealt with during the continuance of the War.
