HC Deb 16 November 1955 vol 546 c33W
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.
