Mr. FOOT MITCHELL
asked the Minister of Agriculture whether, in connection with the revision of railway rates for the conveyance of livestock, any steps are being taken to defend the agricultural interests affected; and, if so, whether he will state their nature?2081W
§ Colonel W. ASHLEY
I have been asked to reply to this question, and would refer my hon. Friend to the reply which I gave to him on the 26th April last, in answer to a similar question. I understand that the Livestock Traders' Association of Great Britain and the National Farmers' Union are appearing before the Railway Rates Tribunal in connection with the matter.
