§ Lord SCONE
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he has any statement to make on the proposed Scottish Raspberry Marketing Board; and whether any modifications suggested by 841W the commissioner have been communicated to the opponents, as well as to the promoters, of the scheme?
§ Sir G. COLLINS
The scheme is being dealt with in accordance with the procedure laid down in the Agricultural Marketing Act, 1931. As the nominees of the promoters have intimated their assent to modifications made in the scheme, I am now considering, in consultation with the Board of Trade, the laying of the draft of the scheme before each House of Parliament. The modifications made in the scheme have not been communicated to the opponents of the scheme.
