HC Deb 26 February 1934 vol 286 c747
27. Mr. SPENS

asked the Minister of Agriculture what is the state of the negotiations which are proceeding between the brewers and the Hops Marketing Board regarding amendments to the hops marketing scheme?


During the past few days informal consultations have been proceeding between representatives of the Hops Marketing Board and the Brewers' Society, with the object of securing closer collaboration between growers and brewers in the production and marketing of hops. Further consultations have taken place to-day. I am hopeful that it will be possible to arrive at a working arrangement which will be agreeable to both parties.
