§ 60. Major Wall
asked the Minister of Defence whether he proposes, in normal circumstances, to appoint the chairman of the Chiefs of Staff Committee from each of the three Services in turn.
§ Mr. Selwyn Lloyd
This appointment is a matter for my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister. I can, however, say that the governing consideration in the selection of an officer for this post will be his suitability and not the Service to which he belongs.
