HC Deb 13 February 1961 vol 634 c906
5. Mr. Farr

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food when he will be in a position to present the Report of the Study Group on Toxic Sprays.

Mr. Vane

Although the Group is still receiving evidence, it is considering the outline of its Report, which my right hon. Friend hopes will be completed some time in the summer.

Mr. Farr

Mr. Vane
