HC Deb 21 July 1961 vol 644 cc1647-8

Lords Amendment: In page 49, to leave out lines 28 to 32 and insert: shall consist of a chairman (who shall be the person who is for the time being the managing director of the Authority), such number of persons appointed by the Authority, being officers thereof, as may be determined from time to time by the Authority, and fourteen other persons so appointed. 2.—(1) Of the members of the Committee other than the chairman and those who are officers of the Authority—

Mr. Vane

I beg to move, That this House doth agree with the Lords in the said Amendment.

This Amendment is exactly similar to two previous Amendments dealt with by my right hon. Friend when he explained to the House that the composition of these three Committees will be enlarged by further representation of the Authority in order to allow for continuity of operation. As the House has already accepted this change in regard to the workers' and transport committees, I hope it will approve of this similar proposal in regard to the management committee.

Question put and agreed to.
