HC Deb 07 March 1938 vol 332 cc1535-6
82. Mr. Pethick-Lawrence

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he will consult with the Scottish Development Council with a view to appointing a woman member to the Films of Scotland Committee?

Mr. Wedderburn

The appointment of this committee is primarily a matter for the Scottish Development Council themselves, though my right hon. Friend was consulted before a final decision was arrived at. My right hon. Friend understands that the members of the committee were selected because of their personal knowledge of the questions involved. He is not aware of any proposal for adding to the numbers of the present committee, but will bring the right hon. Member's question to the notice of the council.
