HC Deb 13 June 1933 vol 279 cc23-4

(by Private Notice) asked the Prime Minister if he can now state the names of the industrial advisers to the United Kingdom Delegation to the Monetary and Economic Conference?

The LORD PRESIDENT of the COUNCIL (Mr. Baldwin)

Yes, Sir. The names of the industrial advisers to the United Kingdom Delegation are as follow:

Nominated by the Association of British Chambers of Commerce:

Sir Alan Garrett Anderson, K.B.E.

Nominated by the Federation of British Industries:

Sir George Beharrell, D.S.O.

The Director of the Federation of British Industries will act as substitute for Sir George Beharrell in the unavoidable absence of the latter.

Nominated by the Shipowners' Parliamentary Committee:

Sir Norman Hill, Bt.

Nominated by the General Council of the Trades Union Congress:

Mr. A. G. Walkden and Mr. W. M. Citrine.

As Adviser on Colonial trade matters:

Sir Edward Davson, Bt.

As Adviser on Agricultural questions:

Sir Douglas Newton.

While in view of the constitution of the Conference, it will not be possible to give the industrial advisers a right of admission to the private proceedings of the Conference or its committees, the United Kingdom Delegation will have the advantage of consulting the advisers as occasion requires and of receiving through them the representative views of trade and industry.
