§ 32. Mr. J. HALL
asked the Minister of Agriculture what pubic bodies, if any, have made representations to him in respect of the refusal of the Bacon Development Board to permit a bacon factory to be established in the Bridgwater district; and what action he proposes to take in the matter?
§ The MINISTER of AGRICULTURE (Mr. Elliot)
I have received representations on this subject from the Bridgwater Town Council, and I have invited their attention to the provisions of the Bacon Development Scheme, relating to the settlement of such disputes by arbitration.
§ Mr. ELLIOT
I am informed by the Bacon Development Board that 736 producers' licences are at present in force under the Bacon Development Scheme. Of these, 130 are held by co-operative concerns, one by a local authority and 605 by private concerns.
