HC Deb 28 January 1941 vol 368 c427
62. Captain Plugge

asked the Minister of Transport whether, in the new official organisation he is setting up to co-ordinate road transport, he will indicate the extent to which this organisation is to be staffed by civil servants, and indicate the experience which civil servants have had in running an organisation of this nature?

The Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Transport (Mr. Montague)

The organisation for the new road-transport scheme will form an integral part of my Department, and the details have not yet been fully worked out. My right hon. Friend will, however, as has already been announced, obtain the assistance of qualified men experienced in the industry, who will be invited to join the staff of the Ministry for that purpose.

Mr. Davidson

Will the representatives of the workmen's organisations connected with road transport be consulted?

Mr. Montague

I will take note of that question.
