HC Deb 16 November 1955 vol 546 cc398-9
41. Mr. Page

asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation whether he will recognise chambers of trade as responsible bodies for nominating persons to serve on area transport consultative councils.

Mr. Boyd-Carpenter

These councils include representatives of commerce, and I would not wish to upset their balance of membership by increasing it. In appropriate cases I am prepared to consider inviting the views of chambers of trade in connection with appointments to these councils.
