HC Deb 14 May 1928 vol 217 cc675-6
73. Mr. E. BROWN

asked the Minister of Transport if he will state on how many occasions in the past four years he has rejected the advice of the London and Home Counties Traffic Advisory Committee, and on what issues?

Colonel ASHLEY

No, Sir. The committee is an advisory body and the responsibility for any action taken rests entirely with the Minister.


On how many occasions has the right hon. Gentleman rejected their advice?

Colonel ASHLEY

No, I am not answering that question. I say the responsibility for taking the advice rests with the Minister and with no one else.


Is it true that when this Traffic Advisory Body recently submitted a Report to the right hon. Gentleman he sent it back for alterations?

Colonel ASHLEY

No, Sir.
