§ Mrs. Shields
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what consultations he conducts when deciding who to appoint and reappoint to the national parks committees.
§ Mr. Waldegrave
The Countryside Commission is my right hon. Friend's statutory advisers in this matter, but it is also his custom to seek the views of the national park chairmen. In addition, he considers nominations from a wide variety of sources including hon. Members with national park constituencies.
