HC Deb 26 June 1973 vol 858 c295W
42. Mr. Parker

asked the Secretary of State for Employment what will be the position of employment advisory committees under the proposed reorganisation.

Mr. Dudley Smith

It will be for the Manpower Services Commission to determine whether it has local advisory committees and, if so, the committee structure and membership. My right hon. Friend will continue the existing local employment committees until about the end of 1974, when the commission takes over the Employment Service Agency and the relevant Sections of the Employment and Training Act 1948 are repealed.
