§ Mr. Brooke
I am pleased to say that Sir Duncan Anderson has agreed to accept appointment as Chairman of the Commission. Sir Duncan was until recently Chairman of the Federal Power Board of Rhodesia and Nyasaland, responsible for the construction of the Kariba project.
I am also happy to say that General Sir Nevil Brownjohn and Mr. Henry Wells, at the present time Chairmen of the Crawley and Hemel Hempstead Development Corporations respectively, have agreed to accept appointment as members of the Commission. This will secure continuity with the corporations of the two first towns to be taken over.
The appointments cannot be made before 1st October, the date on which the Commission comes into being. Before that date I shall be announcing one or two further appointments.
