HC Deb 28 April 1938 vol 335 c323W
Mr. R. Duckworth

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether his attention has been called to the fact that, in seeking the approval of growers for its amendments to the potato marketing scheme, the Potato Marketing Board has stated in a circular that the fundamental principles of the scheme will be unaffected; and whether, in view of the fact that these amendments will give the board full powers to speculate in all grades of potatoes, in contravention of the original marketing proposals, he will order a new circular to be issued making this clear?

Mr. W. S. Morrison:

I have seen the statement referred to, but I am not able to accept my hon. Friend's suggestion.
