§ 19. Mr. Hugh Jenkins
asked the Minister of Posts and Telecommunications whether in making the recent appointment of Chairman of the BBC he consulted the views of the governors of the corporation.
§ Sir J. Eden
It is not customary to reveal what consultations have taken place before appointments are made.
§ Mr. Jenkins
Does not the right hon. Gentleman agree that it has been customary in the past to consult the governors on the question of appointments? Is he not prepared to say that on this occasion he followed the previous practice?
