HC Deb 29 June 1965 vol 715 c67W
Q10. Mr. Carmichael

asked the Prime Minister if he will take steps to increase consumer participation in the nationalised industries; and if he will, as a first step, make the consultative councils independent of area boards for their office accommodation and secretarial staff.

The Prime Minister

The present arrangements appear to be working satisfactorily but, if my hon. Friend has any particular suggestions to make, I am sure that my right hon. Friends responsible for individual nationalised industries will be interested to hear them.
