HC Deb 25 February 1907 vol 169 c1260
MR. BOTTOMLEY (Hackney, S.)

I beg to ask the hon. Member for South Somerset, as representing the President of the Board of Agriculture, of whom the Board consists; whether it has ever met; and, if so, the date of the last meeting.


The Board of Agriculture and Fisheries consists of a President, who must be a Member of the Privy Council, the President of the Council, the Principal Secretaries of State, the First Lord of the Treasury, the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster, the Secretary for Scotland, and such other persons as His Majesty may from time to time think fit to appoint. There is no record of the Board as such having ever met.
