HC Deb 28 October 1952 vol 505 c1721
25. Major Anstruther-Gray

asked the Minister of Works whether he will give the names, with dates of appointment, of the Scottish Temporary Defence Works Committee.

Mr. Eccles

No, Sir. This Committee is inter-departmental. It is not the practice to give the names of civil servants serving on committees of this nature.

Major Anstruther-Gray

Would my right hon. Friend just give the name of the chairman of the Committee, so that we might know what weight to attach to its recommendations?

Mr. Eccles

I am afraid that would break the usual rule.
