Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Minister of Posts and Telecommunications whether he will give an assurance that he will not appoint, as chairman and members of his proposed independent broadcasting authority to supervise commercial local radio stations, persons formerly active in politics and ex-Ministers of the Crown.

No. I would appoint the best qualified person available for each post.
