§ Q30. Mr. Gregor MacKenzie
asked the Prime Minister if she will instruct members of the Government not to appoint any one individual to the board of more than one nationalised industry.
§ The Prime Minister
No. The boards of nationalised industries are selected in accordance with the provisions of the governing statutes and members are chosen for the experience which they bring to bear. There is no reason why someone should not hold more than one appointment, and in some cases a member of one board automatically becomes a member of another by virtue of his office.
