HC Deb 09 December 1953 vol 521 cc1946-7
2. Mr. Peart

asked the Minister of Food what organisations he proposes to consult before announcing his plan to improve auction markets.

Major Lloyd George

I will, with permission, circulate in the Official Report a list of the professional and trade organisations to which the Government are turning for advice. These bodies and any others which have an interest will be consulted freely as occasion requires.

Lieut.-Colonel Lipton

Do any of these bodies include representatives of consumers?

Major Lloyd George

No, they do not. It is mostly to do with auction markets.

Following is the list: The Joint English and Scottish Livestock Auctioneers' Consultative Committee; The National Farmers' Union of England and Wales; The Scottish Farmers' Union; The Ulster Farmers' Union; The National Council of Associations of Fresh Meat Wholesalers; The National Federation of Meat Traders' Associations; The Scottish Federation of Meat Traders' Associations; The Livestock Traders' Association of Great Britain; The National Association of British Market Authorities.
