(2)   Has a bureau section consisting of about five statisticians been disbanded and told not to continue with this work.

(3)   Is he able to say whether these surveys normally form an essential basis for the welfare policies of most other advanced countries.

(4)   If the position is as stated, will the survey be recommenced and carried through to completion; if so, when.
