HC Deb 17 March 1938 vol 333 cc613-4W
Colonel Burton

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether any reports have been made by the commission charged with inquiries regarding redundancy of markets; and whether any recommendations have been made regarding the limiting or closing of any markets in East Anglia?

Mr. W. S. Morrison

No such reports or recommendations have been made by the Livestock Commission. I would take this opportunity to draw attention to the fact that the Livestock Industry Act provides a number of safeguards for interests likely to be affected by a Livestock Markets Order, the first of which is that as soon as the Commission decide that an Order is desirable in any area they shall serve written notice on such bodies as appear to be representative of the interests concerned and shall take into consideration any representations made by those bodies.
