HC Deb 05 July 1954 vol 529 cc1788-9
41. Mr. Edelman

asked the Minister of Supply when the National Advisory Council for the Motor Industry last met; and which of its recommendations he proposes to publish.

Mr. Sandys

The answer to the first part of the Question is, 28th April. The answer to the second part is, None, Sir.

Mr. Edelman

Is it not the case that this potentially valuable body has been allowed to become moribund under the present Government? Will the right hon. Gentleman not take steps to issue regular reports and to call regular meetings and to strengthen this body by increasing its trade union representation?

Mr. Sandys

I do not know why the hon. Member thinks it has become moribund. It met about two months ago and is to meet again at the end of this month.
