HC Deb 13 December 1939 vol 355 cc1205-6
74. Mr. C. Brown

asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster why it had been ruled that a co-operative insurance agent, who is a local councillor, is ineligible to sit on a local food committee?

Mr. W. S. Morrison

I assume that the hon. Member is referring to a particular appointment, on the Mansfield Food Control Committee, in regard to which a question arose as to the application of Article 2 (2) (b) of the Food Control Committees (Constitution) Order, 1939. Further particulars recently received show that there is no disqualification on grounds of occupation, and the objection to the appointment is accordingly being withdrawn.
