§ MR. TURTON
asked the Prime Minister whether his attention has been called to the resolution which was passed at the last meeting of the Road Board, the chairman alone dissenting, that the conduct of the chairman was both irregular and discourteous; whether a copy of this resolution was directed to be forwarded to him and the Chancellor of the Exchequer; and whether the Government are now prepared to accept the resignation of Sir George Gibb?
The answer to the first two parts of the question is in the affirmative. As regards the last part, the view of the Government remains as expressed in my answer to the hon. Member for the Twickenham Division on the 19th May last.
