HC Deb 03 July 1919 vol 117 c1179W
Captain R. TERRELL

asked the Prime Minister whether he will be able to announce the composition of the Road Transport Board; and whether he will take into consideration the representation on it of agricultural interests?


I have been asked to answer this question. The Road Transport Board is a temporary Department of the Board of Trade which was set up in February, 1918. It is an Interdepartmental body consisting of representatives of the Board of Trade, Ministry of Munitions, Ministry of Food, War Office, Post Office, and the Road Board. A representative of the Board of Agriculture is entitled to attend the meetings when any question affecting agricultural interests arises.
