HC Deb 09 February 1978 vol 943 cc686-7W
28. Rev. Ian Paisley

asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland if he is aware of the dissatisfaction in Northern Ireland with the composition of area boards; and if he will take steps to change their composition so that the majority on each board will be from the elected members of district councils.

Mr. Carter

My noble Friend the Minister of State has from time to time received representations asking him to make changes of various kinds in the composition of health and social services and education and library boards, but we are not aware of any general dissatisfaction with the present balance of representation and we have no plans to change it.
