HC Deb 16 March 1960 vol 619 cc98-9W
27. Mr. F. Noel-Baker

asked the Minister of Transport if he will now issue a general direction to the British Transport Commission requiring them to publish the names and salaries of the members of the regional railway boards and to make available all other information, other than that relating to the regional accounts, as is now published by other nationalised industries or given to the shareholders of private firms.

Mr. Marples

No. The area boards are appointed by the Commision. I do not think that information to be published about the boards is appropriate for a general direction.
