§ Mr. Bellenger
asked the Secretary to the Overseas Trade Department whether he will state the names of the members of the Export Guarantees Advisory Council?
§ Mr. R. S. Hudson
An Export Guarantees Advisory Council has not yet been constituted. An advisory committee was constituted for the purposes of the Export Guarantees Act, 1937, and the names of the members are as follow:
- Colonel the Hon. Sir Sidney Peel, Bt., C.B., D.S.O. (Chairman).
- Sir John Caulcutt, K.C.M.G. (Deputy Chairman).
- Sir Amos Ayre, O.B.E.
- Sir Ernest Bain, K.B.E.
- E. H. Gilpin, Esq.
- F. M. G. Glyn, Esq.
- F. Goldsmith, Esq.
- T. St. Quintin Hill, Esq., C.M.G., O.B.E.
- G. A. Isaacs, Esq.
- H. K. Kindersley, Esq., M.C.
- Captain O. Lyttleton, D.S.O., M.C.
- G. A. McEwen, Esq.
- F. H. Nixon, Esq., C.B.
- Sir John Niven.
- Sir Charles Seligman.
It is with profound regret that I have to add that Colonel Sir Sidney Peel died yesterday. As chairman of the advisory committee since 1919 and in many other ways, Colonel Peel had rendered invaluable assistance to his country; I am confident I am expressing the feelings of the whole House as well as of the Government in testifying to the immense debt of gratitude which we owe to his memory.
