HC Deb 13 November 1934 vol 293 cc1756-7
38. Mr. H. STEWART

asked the Minister of Agriculture if the Milk, Pigs, and Bacon Boards intend to publish reports on their first year's working similar to the report recently published by the Potato Marketing Board?


The Potato, Milk, Pigs and Bacon Marketing Schemes contain provisions requiring the boards concerned to send a report on the working of the scheme in each annual accounting period to every registered producer and to the Minister. The Potato Marketing Board's report covered the period from the inception of the scheme until 31st August, 1934. The Milk, Pigs and Bacon Marketing Boards have issued reports for the periods ended 31st March last in the case of the Milk Marketing Board and 31st December, 1933, in the case of the other two boards.
