§ 32. Mr. Mathers
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he is now in a position to give any indication of the Government policy as the result of his active consideration of the plight of Scottish poultry farmers?
§ Mr. Elliot
No, Sir; but as the hon. Member is aware the position of the industry as a whole is under continual review by my right hon. Friend the Minister of Agriculture and myself. I have taken recent opportunities of discussing their particular problems with the bodies representing poultry farmers in Scotland.
§ Mr. Mathers
If I were to repeat this question after Easter, does the right hon. Gentleman think the Government might have something hatched out by then?
§ Mr. H. G. Williams
Can the right hon. Gentleman say whether the Government are going to take the first step of denouncing the trade agreements?
