asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he has yet confirmed the scheme for the reconstitution of the local advisory committee of the Carlisle and District State Management Scheme.
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department by what date he expects to make his three appointments to the local advisory committee of the Carlisle and District State Management Scheme.
I have asked the existing committee to submit names for consideration, and I will make these appointments when I have received their reply.
Can the right hon. Gentleman give me a date by which he expects these appointments to be made? In the meantime, would he be willing to receive representations on the point?
I cannot fix the date on which I shall receive the reply to which I have alluded, but I am perfectly willing to receive representations from any interested party.
Will the right hon. Gentleman undertake that the representations will be from persons resident in Cumberland and with a known pleasure in drinking beer, rather than a known connection with a political party?
I shall apply to these appointments the principles to which I have referred in other connections: I shall appoint the persons who seem to me to be the best qualified for the job.
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will consider at once expanding the State Management Districts Council to include representation from the Carlisle local advisory committee.
Yes, Sir. I propose to appoint a representative of the Carlisle local advisory committee on the State Management Districts Council when the new committee has been set up and has had an opportunity to submit a nomination.
I thank my right hon. Friend.
