Because the legislation was a hybrid bill it had been possible to allow it to 'roll over' into the new parliament under the incoming National Government. The new government, although dominated by Conservatives, decided to continue with the bill with no serious changes, despite its extensive transfer of private undertakings into the public sector.[citation needed] On 1 July 1933 the LPTB came into being, covering the "London Passenger Transport Area".[1]The board[edit]The LPTB had a chairman and six other members. The members were chosen jointly by five "appointing trustees" listed in the Act:The chairman of the London County Council;A representative of the London and Home Counties Traffic Advisory Committee;The chairman of the Committee of London Clearing Banks;The president of the Law Society; andThe president of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales.The Act required that the board members should be "persons who have had wide experience, and have shown capacity, in transport, industrial, commercial or financial matters or in the conduct of public affairs and, in the case of two members, shall be persons who have had not less than six years' experience in local government within the London Passenger Transport Area."[2]The first chairman and vice-chairman were Lord Ashfield and Frank Pick, who had held similar positions with the Underground Group. Members of the board had a term of office of between three and seven years, and were eligible for reappointment. Condition: This clock is completely original.
