§ Dr. O'DONOVAN
asked the Minister of Agriculture whether the Hops Marketing Board have received notice from any hop growers that they have taken advantage of the provisions for the exchange of quotas contained in Clause 46, b (ii), of the Hop Marketing Scheme; if so, how many of such transfers have there been; and what has been the average consideration for such transfers'?
§ Mr. ELLIOT
I am informed by the Hops Marketing Board that 485 transfers of annual quotas, affecting less than 5 per cent. of the crop, have been arranged among registered hop producers this season. As regards the last part of my hon. Friend's question, the consideration is a matter for arrangement between the producers concerned, and I regret I have no information on the subject.
