§ 9. Lord SCONE
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he is aware that Section 30 of the Scottish Milk Marketing Scheme empowers the board to exempt such producers as the board thinks fit from the provisions of the scheme; and whether he is satisfied that this unconditional power of exemption will not prejudice the success of the scheme?
§ Sir G. COLLINS
The provision in Section 30 of the scheme empowers the 175 board to exempt producers and sales of such classes or descriptions as they may determine. This power is authorised by Section 6 (1) (b) of the Agricultural Marketing Act, 1931, and I am satisfied that it will not prejudice the success of the scheme.
