HC Deb 25 May 1966 vol 729 cc456-7
22. Mr. Charles Morrison

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food whether he intends to implement the recommendations of the first report of the Departmental Committee of Inquiry into Statutory Smallholdings.

Mr. Peart

I would refer the hon. Member to the reply I gave to the hon. Member for Dorset, West (Mr. Wingfield Digby) on 18th May.

Mr. Morrison

Can the right hon. Gentleman say whether he has issued any interim instructions to county councils in the light of the recommendations of the Report?

Mr. Peart

I have not. I would rather wait for the views of the various responsible organisations which are affected.
