asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether he will set up a Departmental Committee to consider and report upon the present accommodation allotted to various Departments of State and to make suggestions as to a re-allotment in order to effect increased economy and efficiency in the working of such Departments?

The accommodation allotted to Departments is kept under constant review with the object of securing greater economy and efficiency in the public service, and I see no occasion for the appointment of a special committee for this purpose.

Is the Financial Secretary aware that if this committee is set up it will be only the 27th committee set up by the present Government?
