§ MR. J. F. MASON (Windsor)
I beg to ask the hon. Member for South Somerset, as representing the President of the Board of Agriculture, if it is proposed to carry out the scheme outlined by the Board in the memorandum as to the proposed council of agricultural research issued early in the year.
§ MR. JOSEPH A. PEASE
Negotiations are proceeding with regard to the suggestions made in the memorandum to which the hon. Member refers, but it is not possible as yet 309 to say whether they can be brought to a successful issue.
