HC Deb 07 March 1938 vol 332 c1535
81. Mr. Pethick-Lawrence

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he can see his way to add a woman member to the Committee on Local Government and Public Health?

Mr. Wedderburn

The members of the committee referred to were appointed in consultation with the associations of local authorities in Scotland, and for their personal knowledge of the statutes involved. It is not at present proposed to add to their number.
