HC Deb 15 November 1934 vol 293 cc2123-4
21. Mr. T. SMITH

asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware that the National League of the Blind has only one representative out of 20 on the Central Advisory Committee for the Welfare of the Blind; and whether, in view of the fact that the National League is the largest organisation for the blind, he will consider the possibility of giving it additional representation?


The composition of the committee was carefully considered from the point of view of giving adequate representation to the interests concerned, without having numbers too large for efficiency. In addition to the member representing the National League for the Blind there is, I understand, another member closely connected with the League. I regret that I cannot undertake at present to add to the size of the committee.
