HC Deb 18 March 1975 vol 888 cc384-5W
Mr. George Rodgers

asked the Secretry of State for the Environment if he will consider advising that there be an elected element to the bodies of Traffic Commissioners.

Mr. Carmichael:

Elected representatives of local government already take part in the work of the Traffic Courts. Two Traffic Commissioners in each area, and their deputies, are appointed from panels of persons, mostly councillors, nominated by the county and district councils.
