HC Deb 19 February 1947 vol 433 cc1144-5
3. Colonel J. R. H. Hutchison

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Civil Aviation whether the recommendations of the Scottish Advisory Council to the Corporations will be laid before Parliament.

Mr. Lindgren

No, Sir. The Council was formed under Section 3 of the Civil Aviation Act to advise the Corporations in relation to the discharge of their functions in respect of matters of interest to Scotland.

Colonel Hutchison

Does that mean that the public will have no way of knowing what recommendations the Advisory Council have made?

Mr. Lindgren

No, Sir, except that the recommendations are made to the Board of B.E.A., and B.E.A. are required to make a report annually to Parliament. I shall be surprised if their annual report does not include a statement on the work and functions of the Scottish Advisory Council.
