§ 46. Sir C. HENRY
asked the Prime Minister if he will consider the desirability of appointing a Committee of the Members of this House to investigate the staffs at the different Government Departments, with the object that staffs are not retained in excess of actual requirements?
§ Mr. BALDWIN (Joint Financial Secretary to the Treasury)
My right hon. Friend doubts whether there would be any advantage in appointing such a Committee at the present moment. The disbandment of the war emergency staffs is already in active progress, and the situation changes so much from day to day that before the Committee could report the data upon which its conclusions were based would be obsolete.
§ Sir C. HENRY
Is my hon. Friend aware that the demobilisation of these clerks is making very unsatisfactory progress?
