asked the Minister of Fuel and Power what are names of the members of the Gas Area Boards constituted under the Gas Act, 1948, appointed since 1st January, 1949; and what are the dates of their appointments.

Mr. Gaitskell

As the reply consists of a number of names and dates, I will with the hon. and gallant Member's permission, circulate it in the OFFICIAL REPORT. For the convenience of the hon. and gallant Member and the House, I have also included appointments made prior to 1st January, 1949.

While appreciating the Minister's suggestion, with which I agree, can he confirm that all these Area Boards were established by the end of January, and that they consisted of a chairman and three other members?
