HC Deb 27 October 1919 vol 120 cc255-6
30. Colonel LAMBERT WARD

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Agriculture if he will state the reason for not including a representative of the National Cattle Food Trade Association on the Royal Commission on Agriculture?

32. Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Bard of Agriculture why no representative of the makers of cattle food was appointed a member of the Royal Commission on Agriculture; and whether he will now consider the appointment of an additional member to represent this trade interest?


It was not considered desirable to include representatives of any trade associations as such in the list of persons recommended to His Majesty for appointment.

Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY

Will facilities be given to representatives of this important trade to attend the sittings of the Commission and listen to the evidence?


I am not certain how far the Commission is open to the public, but surely their best course, if they wish to influence the findings of the Commission, is to give evidence before them.
