asked the Minister of Food what is the composition of his Housewives Advisory Committee; what are the qualifications for membership; and what bodies are permitted to nominate members to serve upon this committee.

I assume that the question refers to a committee which forms part of the organisation of the Labour Party in the constituency I represent. It has no association with the Ministry of Food and since neither the expenditure of public money nor my constitutional responsibilities as a Minister are in any way involved, I feel it is no part of my duty to give the information asked for. If, however, the hon. Member, as a matter of private interest would like to discuss the Committee with me, I should be happy to advise him on the formation of a similar body in his own constituency.
