§ Mr. Roy Hughes
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food when the term of office expires of the four harbour commissioners appointed by him at Newlyn, Cornwall; and, in view of the unsatisfactory state of industrial relations there, if he will consider inviting interested bodies to submit the names of suitable nominees.
§ Mr. Prior
The terms expire on different dates, at which I bear in mind all possibilities, including re-appointment, but as I explained in my reply of 29th March to the hon. Member my appointments are not made on the nomination of any other body.446W
I do not in any case accept that the difficulties the hon. Member has in mind, or their solution, can be linked specifically with the choice for Ministerial appointments. I am however looking into the position in a wider context.—[Vol. 814, c. 293.]
