57.

asked the Minister of Transport when he expects that the Transport Consultative Committee for the London area will be set up; and what bodies he proposes to consult to nominate members to this committee.

I have invited bodies representing the appropriate interests to submit nominations from which I can choose members for the Transport Users Consultative Committee for London. With the hon. Member's permission I propose to circulate a list of the bodies in the OFFICIAL REPORT.

Are the interests of outer London to be represented on this body, and particularly the western outskirts of London?

if my hon. Friend will look at the list which will be circulated in HANSARD tomorrow, he will be able to see the bodies which are being consulted.

When the Minister says "London," does he mean London or the London Transport area?

Following is the list:

Association of British Chamber of Commerce, London Chamber of Commerce, Parliamentary Committee of the Co-operative Congress, Federation of British Industries, National Union of Manufacturers, Trades Union Congress (two members), General Council of British Shipping (two members), County Councils' Association (two members), London County Council, Common Council of the City of London, Association of Municipal Corporations.
