asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food by what method were area controllers of National Vegetable Marketing, Limited, appointed; and whether in each case the controller was nominated by the organised trade?

The area controllers so far appointed by the National Vegetable Marketing Company were appointed by the Board of Directors as being, in their view, the individuals best qualified for the particular posts. The answer to the last part of the Question is in the negative.
