HC Deb 24 February 1936 vol 309 cc60-1W

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether it is his intention in setting up the sugar marketing scheme to require that any contracts entered into by the board for the carriage of sugar beet should be open to all forms of appropriate transport?


The question of incorporating in the draft sugar beet marketing scheme a provision such as that to which my hon. and gallant Friend refers is primarily one for the promoters of the scheme, who are at present considering its re-submission to my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Scotland and myself. If the scheme is re-submitted, notice of the submission will be published arid it will be open to any person, within a stated period, to make objections or representations with regard to it.
