§ Sir John Biggs-Davison
asked the Secretary of State for Transport what appointment has been made to the: vacancy in the Commission of Irish Lights.
§ Mr. David Mitchell
My right hon. Friend has no powers in this matter: appointments are made by the commissioners themselves. However, I understand that there is no vacancy at present. The most recent appointment was in August last, when Mr. V. A. Cooke OBE succeeded the late Major G. V. MacKean.
