HC Deb 23 January 1918 vol 101 c982
81. Major CHAPPLE

asked whether a town council, in securing representatives to serve on a food control committee, is within its rights if it stipulates that a cooperative society must limit its nominees to ratepayers of the burgh, while no such limitation is placed on other bodies?


The appointment of members of a food control committee is vested by the Food Control Committees (Constitution) Order, 1917, in the local authority- for the area concerned. The stipulation referred to does not appear to be outside the discretionary powers of the appointing authority.
