§ 29. Mr. Lipton
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food when he will announce the results of the current Price Review.
§ Mr. John Hare
The Annual Review is still in progress, but I hope that it will be possible to make a statement and to present the customary White Paper in the near future.
§ Mr. Lipton
That Answer is as vague as the Government's policy in general. Can the Minister give an assurance on two points? Can he say, first, that this will not be an imposed settlement, but will be an agreed one and, secondly, that the Government Price Review will take into account the forthcoming rise in farm rents?
Mr. T. Williams
Does not the Minister agree that the 1957 Act is supposed to have made a Price Review very easy?
