HC Deb 30 January 1918 vol 101 c1580W

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether the Railway Companies' Association were asked to nominate representatives on the advisory panel; and, if not, whether, in view of the loyal co-operation which they have given in carrying out the wishes of the Government, he is prepared to nominate their representatives on the advisory panel?


The members of the Railway Advisory Panel were in no case chosen as representatives of interests, but. in view of their individual knowledge and experience, and I do not think it desirable at present to depart from that principle.
