asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of War Transport whether he is in a position to make any further statement with regard to the meetings of the Transport Advisory Council set up under the provisions of the Road-Rail Act?
The Transport Advisory Connell consists of about 30 members. It is constituted on a representative basis and in peace time it has given much valuable advice and assistance to the Minister of Transport. It is not, however, a suitable consultative body for the special problems of war. It will be re-assembled when matters arise which can appropriately be referred to it.
