HC Deb 06 December 1934 vol 295 cc1814-5
36. Major OWEN

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether it is proposed to set up a marketing scheme for agricultural by-products, such as hides, skins, wool, &c.; and whether he is in a position to give an outline of the proposed scheme?


An investigation into the marketing of hides and skins is being conducted by my Department with the intention of publishing the results in the customary manner in the Economic Series of Reports, but I have no knowledge of any scheme, under the Agricultural Marketing Acts, for regulating the marketing of hides, skins or wool.
