HC Deb 12 April 1945 vol 409 c1977
52. Sir W. Smithers

asked the Minister of Agriculture by what authority the Milk Marketing Board have imposed penalties on registered producers of milk, particulars of which have been sent to him.

Mr. Hudson

The Milk Marketing Scheme, 1933, as approved by Parliament and the Milk Marketing Board (Modification of Functions) Order, 1942.

Sin W. Smithers

Is not this another case of penalties being imposed by a body not properly constituted, from which there is no appeal to a court of justice?

Mr. Hudson

That question was examined by a committee in 1939, which reported in favour of the practice.
