§ Mr. Robinson
asked the Lord President of the Council if he will make a statement about the report of the Committee of Inquiry into the Refreshment Department which was laid before the House on 24th June.
§ Mr. Foot
The report of the Committee of Inquiry into the House of Commons Refreshment Department was published on 21st July. I am sure that the whole House will be grateful to the Chairman, my hon. Friend the Member for Bethnal Green and Bow (Mr. Mikardo) and his Committee for their report—and especially to those members of the Committee who are not Members of this House and gave so willingly of their time. I am sure that the House will wish to consider the report, and I should be glad to receive the views of hon. Members.
