asked the Minister of Transport what appointment he is making in respect of the chairmanship of the Port of London Authority.

Sir John Cuckney, the present chairman of the Port of London Authority, has informed me that for personal reasons he does not wish to be reappointed for a further term when his current appointment expires at the end of the year. I am appointing Mr. Victor Paige, currently deputy chairman of the National Freight Corporation, to succeed Sir John Cuckney for a term of three years from 1 January 1980. Mr. Paige will continue to serve as part-time deputy chairman of the National Freight Corporation.I take this opportunity to pay a warm tribute to Sir John Cuckney for the invaluable work he has done during his term as chairman.
