HC Deb 06 August 1940 vol 363 c64W
Mr. Noel-Baker

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware that Coventry is not represented on the Prices Regulation Committee for the region; and whether he will take steps to add one or two labour representatives, in view of the large working population in Coventry?

Sir A. Duncan

In view of the size of the regions for which local price regulation committees have been appointed, it is not as a general rule possible, even if it were desirable, to provide for the representation of particular localities. I will, however, consider the hon. Member's suggestion should it prove necessary to make any further appointments to the Committee.
