§ Mr. Strachey
Food control committees were set up primarily to look after the interests of consumers who have ten to twelve seats on the committee. Five retail trade members serve on a normal committee, one cooperative, one grocer, one butcher member, and two unclassified members. One or more of these may be a member of the retail fruit trade. I am not prepared to increase the membership of a committee which is already large, nor to put the retail fruit trade in a privileged position compared with dairymen, bakers, caterers and fishmongers by reserving one of the two unclassified seats for them.
