HC Deb 22 February 1932 vol 262 c37W

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether an advisory committee for agriculture research has now been set up as recommended by the Committee on National Expenditure last year; and, if so, if he will give the names of the committee, its terms of reference, and the Vote on which the expenses of the committee will be borne?


With regard to the establishment of the Agricultural Research Council, the names of the members of the Council, and the purpose for which it was established, I would refer the hon. and gallant Member to the answer given by Dr. Addison in the House on 6th July last to the then Member for South Shields, Mr. Ede, of which I am sending him a copy. The expenses of the Council will be borne on the Vote for Scientific Investigation.
