HC Deb 17 March 1971 vol 813 c354W
Mr. John Fraser

asked the Attorney-General when he will appoint Commons Commissioners under the Commons Registration Act, 1965.

The Attorney-General

My noble Friend the Lord Chancellor is responsible for appointing Commons Commissioners under Section 17 of the Act. He will appoint the first as soon as statutory regulations have been made providing for the reference of disputes to them. My right hon. Friends, the Secretaries of State for the Environment and for Wales, will make these regulations when consultations with the outside organisations concerned have been completed.
