Mr. John Fraser
asked the Lord President of the Council if he will make it the practice of Ministers to give fuller information about the financial effects of new legislation when Bills are published.
As I stated in the House on 8th November, the need for fuller explanatory memoranda to public bills, as proposed by the Select Committee on Procedure, is recognised by the Government. I have noted the hon. Gentleman's suggestion in that connection.
