HC Deb 04 August 1939 vol 350 cc2842-3W
Captain Plugge

asked the Minister of Health whether, when he has received from local authorities lists of suggested members of appeal tribunals to decide billeting and evacuation issues, he will publish the selections he finally approves so as to enable all such matters to be settled in anticipation of any emergency?

Mr. Elliot

The lists to which my hon. Friend refers are lists of names out of which the tribunals will be appointed by the mayor or chairman at the time of an emergency. The individual names do not require my approval but I have asked to be informed that the necessary action has been taken by the authority. The publication now of lists of names from which selections would be made would I fear lead to confusion.
