asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government whether he has yet appointed the Chairman of the South Eastern Regional Housing Production Board; what his name and qualifications are; and how many meetings of the Board have been held since 1st November, 1951.

Yes, Sir. Mr. Harold H. Bagnall, until recently a director of Lever Brothers and Unilever, Limited, has kindly consented to serve as Chairman. The first meeting of the Board will be held shortly.

May I ask the Minister to reply to the last part of my Question as to the frequency of meetings?

The Board has only just been fully constituted, and therefore it is only just about having its first meeting.

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government why Lieut.-Colonel Colin Blanchard, O.B.E., whose acceptance of an invitation to join the South Eastern Regional Housing Board was acknowledged by one of his officials on 19th February, has heard nothing further to date.

Colonel Blanchard should now have received a summons to attend the first meeting of the Board.
