§ 105. Major Bruce
asked the Minister of Fuel and Power the names, occupations 181W and qualifications of those persons comprising the committee which advises him on the fixing of retail coal prices.
§ Mr. Gaitskell
No Committee has been appointed to advise me specifically on the fixing of retail coal prices. My hon. Friend may have in mind the Advisory Committees appointed under Section 7 of the Retail Coal Prices Order, 1941, in the twelve regions to assist the regional coal officer and to advise him on any matter referred to them by him. These committees consist of representatives of the interests of coal merchants, suppliers of coke, co-operative societies and consumers of coal in the area and of the National Coal Board, and the names, occupations and qualifications of the members of any particular committee in which my hon. Friend is interested can be sent to him if he so desires.
