HC Deb 29 June 1938 vol 337 c2027

8.52 p.m.

Mr. W. S. Morrison

I beg to move, in page 4, line 39, at the end, to insert: Provided that the Development Board shall, in performing any functions which were functions of the Pigs Marketing Board, act as far as may he in consultation with the body of persons mentioned in the last preceding Sub-section. This Clause deals with what will happen if for various reasons the Pigs Marketing Board or the Bacon Marketing Board passes out of existence. There then comes into existence a body of persons who can advise the Development Board as to the interests of the respective constituents. In Committee attention was drawn by the hon. Member for Stone (Sir J. Lamb) to an omission and to the fact that the Development Board ought to consult the body representing the late board in the event of its not being in existence to perform any of its functions.

Amendment agreed to.
