asked the Prime Minister whether he is now able to announce the names of the chairman and members of the proposed Advisory Council for Wales.


asked the Prime Minister the names of the persons appointed to serve on the Advisory Council for Wales; and the proposed date and venue of the first meeting of the Council.

The composition of the Council has not been finally settled, but I hope to be able to announce the names shortly. Arrangements for the first meeting will not, of course, be made until it has been set up.

Will the right hon. Gentleman appoint, as chairman of this body, a person of some eminence in Wales who has not been associated with party politics, in view of the fact that the setting up of this body has not been well received in the Principality?

The qualifications of the person to be selected as chairman will be taken into account.

Is it the intention to appoint women to the Council, as well as men?
