§ 18. Sir C. Edwards
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he has considered a letter from the Clerk of the Monmouthshire County Council asking for representation on the Welsh Advisory Panel of the British Council; if he is aware that Monmouthshire is the second largest county in Wales and consequently should be represented on this Council; and what are his intentions in this matter.
§ Mr. Mayhew
The letter has been received, and the matter has already been carefully considered; but as my right hon. Friend explained in his reply to a similar Question on 6th August, the members of the Welsh Advisory Panel were not 15W selected on a territorial basis and I see no reason for asking the British Council to make any further appointments.
