§ Mr. PETHERICK
asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he has reconsidered the scheme for the setting up of a pig industry development board, in view of the fact that the limit of time for objections to the scheme expired on 29th June?
§ Mr. ELLIOT
My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Scotland and I have at present under consideration the Bacon Development Scheme and the objections and representations which have been made with respect to it. My hon. Friend can rest assured that the scheme will be dealt with as expeditiously as circumstances permit.
