asked the Minister of Fuel and Power whether the appointment of Lord Hyndley of Meads as Controller-General of the coal industry provides for his relinquishment of the many directorships which he holds in colliery companies; and whether, while he is Controller-General, he will cease to have any official position in any colliery company?

Major Lloyd George:

Lord Hyndley resigned all his colliery directorships on accepting his present appointment. The answer to the second part of the Question is, "Yes."
