asked the Minister of Health if the Cabinet Committee who are considering proposals in connection with social insurance have yet arrived at any conclusions?

I have nothing to add to the reply which I gave to the right hon. Gentleman on the same subject on 23rd January.

What is this Committee doing? What is the reason? Is it the Chancellor of the Exchequer who is stopping this Committee from proceeding with its labours?

The right hon. Gentleman, in spite of his Front Bench position, is acting with all the irresponsibility of a back bencher.

May I ask the right hon. Gentleman whether one side of ministerial responsibility is not to give a plain answer to a plain question?
