§ 59. Mr. Hurd
asked the Minister of Agriculture if he has now completed the selection of nominees to form the new county agricultural committees in succession to the W.A.E.C.s; on what date will they take office; and if they will be responsible for obtaining the required minimum acreages of wheat and potatoes for the 1947 harvest.
§ Mr. T. Williams
The selection of members of the new committees is now practically complete. One of the committees has already taken office, and the remainder will do so during the next few weeks. The new committees will, of course, take over all the responsibilities of the present committees as from the date of their appointment.
