HC Deb 17 March 1919 vol 113 c1723
57. Mr. BIRD

asked the Prime Minister whether he has received a resolution from, the Joint Industrial Council for the Road Transport Industry expressing the opinion that the departmental responsibility for roads and road traffic should be vested in a board rather than in an individual Minister, and that on the board there should be an equal representation of labour and employers with the State representation; and whether he will give effect to that resolution?


The answer to the first part of the question is in the negative; the second part, therefore, does not arise.
