HC Deb 09 February 1956 vol 548 c1803
54. Mr. Willey

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food whether he will make a statement on his negotiations with the National Egg Packers Association.

Mr. Amory

It would not be appropriate for me to make a statement while the negotiations are still in progress.

Mr. Willey

Would it be appropriate for the right hon. Gentleman to say that he is making as expeditious progress as possible? How much longer is he to be stigmatised by the Comptroller and Auditor General on the lack of administration by his Department?

Mr. Amory

I hope that the negotiations will be completed shortly.

Forward to
