§ 40. Mr. Ellis Smith
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of War Transport whether he has considered a resolution from the Newcastle, Staffordshire, Trades Council asking for the setting up of a transport regional advisory 306 committee and expressing concern over transport in the area; and what action is to be taken?
§ The Joint Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of War Transport (Colonel Llewellin)
Yes, Sir. Each Regional Transport Commissioner has already a regional transport advisory committee, which includes a representative of the trades unions. I am considering whether there is scope for a local consultative committee in the area in question. I will communicate with my hon. Friend as soon as possible.
