HC Deb 08 June 1939 vol 348 c629W
Mr. R. Morgan

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he proposes to take any action with regard to the amendments which were recently put forward to the Potato Marketing Scheme by the Potato Marketing Board; and whether the interests which objected to certain of these amendments have now been satisfied?

Sir W. Womersley

My right hon. Friends the Minister of Agriculture and Fisheries and the Secretary of State for Scotland hope to submit these amendments for the approval of Parliament before the summer Recess. They propose to modify the amendments in certain respects before submission, to Parliament, but I cannot, of course, say how far the various interests which objected to the amendments in the original form will feel that the modifications, when published, have met their views.
