HC Deb 23 June 1952 vol 502 c1819
11. Mr. Shepherd

asked the Minister of Transport the number of members of the London and Home Counties Traffic Advisory Committee; their average age; and the age of the chairman.

Mr. Braithwaite

The Minister of Transport appoints four of the 40 members of this Committee. The rest are appointed by a large number of other authorities. I do not know the age of all the members, but the chairman is 46.

Mr. Shepherd

Does not my hon. Friend agree that this voluntary committee renders very good service, and will he not reward them in future by coming to more prompt decisions on their recommendations?

Mr. Braithwaite

Yes, indeed. We value their work.
