§ 26. Mr. Willey
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what action has been taken under Section 23 of the Agriculture Act, 1957, about the marketing of pigs.
§ Mr. John Hare
The Pig Industry Development Authority was constituted on 1st October, 1957. It has not yet exercised any of those functions set out in the Third Schedule to the Agriculture Act, 1957, that have some bearing on the marketing of pigs.
§ Mr. Willey
In view of the fact that—as the right hon. Gentleman will be aware—his recent reply was not regarded as satisfactory amongst those to whom it was sent, would not it be a good idea to call in the advice and assistance of the Authority on this very difficult problem?
