45. Mr. David Adams
asked the Prime Minister whether, in view of the far-reaching and diversified responsibilities of this House in connection with the government and administration of the Colonial Empire and of the inadequate facilities afforded to Members for discussion of these problems, he will consider the desirability of setting up a committee, representative of all sides of the House, to which could be brought for consideration and report to the House salient matters affecting the Colonial Empire?
§ The Prime Minister
I am not aware of any wide demand for the sort of committee which the hon. Member suggests. If the House generally felt that some new body were necessary, the Government 938 would naturally give the matter careful consideration.
Mr. Creech Jones
Will the Prime Minister give attention to the recommendations recently published in Lord Hailey's Report on African affairs in which some suggestions along these lines have been made?
