HC Deb 25 October 1916 vol 86 cc1148-9W

asked the President of the Board of Trade if any steps have been taken to give the Labour and Irish interests representation on the Wheat Commission?


The Wheat Commission is not in the nature of a Commission of Inquiry, nor is it a body with power to decide questions of policy. The members were appointed purely on grounds of expert business knowledge and in no sense on the basis of a representation of interests. It is not proposed to depart from this principle.
