§ Dr. Wright
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport how many of the public bodies for which he is responsible hold meetings in public; and if he will list them.
§ Mr. Norris
Board meetings and committee meetings of public bodies for which my right hon. Friend is responsible are not held in public.
Tribunal hearings which hear appeals against the Civil Aviation Authority's decisions on the granting or otherwise of licences or certificates are open to the public on application. The eight traffic commissioners all hold public inquiries in connection with bus and goods vehicle operator licensing. Other bodies may hold consultation meetings in public from time to time as circumstances require.
