§ Mr. Michael McNair-Wilson
asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if he will list the names of the members of the Transport Aircraft Requirement Committee; what proposals are currently under consideration; and how many times the committee has met in 1972.
§ Mr. Michael Heseltine
Membership of the Transport Aircraft Requirements Committee is drawn from representatives of Government Departments, the Society of British Aerospace Companies, the nationalised and independent airlines, the Civil Aviation Authority and the Aeronautical Research Council. The committee held no meetings in 1972 and has no proposals currently before it.
The future rôle of the TARC will be considered in a general review of consultation arrangements which I have set in hand.
