HC Deb 15 July 1946 vol 425 c868
64. Mr. Garry Allighan

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he will give an assurance that he will adhere to the policy of appointing an equal number of representatives of farmers and farm workers, chosen by their respective organisations, on all the committees and other bodies he has set up.

Mr. T. Williams

The composition of a committee must depend on its functions, and I cannot see my way to adopt the policy referred to.

Mr. De la Bére

Why does the right hon. Gentleman not make the obvious choice? Why does he always have on these committees persons who know nothing about the subject? It is an extraordinary thing.
