§ 28. Mr. JOHNSTON
asked the Secretary for Scotland whether he is now in a position to lay upon the Table a copy of the recent Report supplied to the Scottish Board of Agriculture upon the practice of co-operative marketing of eggs in the Orkney Islands?
§ Sir J. GILMOUR
I have asked the Board of Agriculture for Scotland to prepare a statement respecting agricultural co-operation in Orkney, based upon information collected by the officer who made the Report referred to in the question and upon later information so far as available. Publication of the actual Report made by the officer to his Department would not be appropriate because some of the matter contained in it was given confidentially, and because in some respects it does not include the latest information. When the statement is ready I shall be glad to furnish a copy to any hon. Member who may desire to have one.
§ Mr. JOHNSTON
Will the right hon. Gentleman take some steps to let it be known when the Report is ready for publication, so that we may apply for it?
