HC Deb 16 December 1958 vol 597 cc186-7W
107. Mr. Hamilton

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what was the nature of the consultations he had with the appropriate local authorities prior to making new appointments to the new town development corporations.

Mr. Maclay

A local authority concerned with the development of a new town is invited to suggest names for my consideration in connection with any appointment intended to recognise that authority's concern. All the Scottish new town corporations at present include members selected from persons recommended by the appropriate county and district councils.
