§ Mr. MONTAGU
asked the hon. Member for South Somerset, as representing the President of the Board of Agriculture, how many appointments it is now intended to make to the small holdings staff; and whether he can say when these appointments are likely to be made?
§ Sir E. STRACHEY
An Assistant Commissioner, two Inspectors and two Special Commissioners have recently been appointed. It is proposed to appoint two additional Inspectors—one for Wales—and, if necessary, more Special Commissioners. The clerical staff has also been increased.
