Mr. David Adams
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Works and Buildings the names and qualification of the committee of experts to the Central Planning Authority; and whether both bodies hold regular sessions and at what intervals?
§ Mr. Hicks
A list of the members of my Noble Friend's Consultative Panel is given below. It has not been the intention to hold frequent meetings of the Panel as a whole, but rather to consult members individually or in groups on subjects on which they have special experience, and this is my Noble Friend's practice. It is too early to indicate what procedure will be adopted by the Council of Ministers in the discharge of their functions.
