§ Mr. Price-White
asked the Minister of Food whether he has considered the intention of the Penmaenmawr Urban District Food Control Committee to cease to function; what was the reason given by that committee for such decision; and what steps does he propose to take to safeguard consumer and distributive interests in Penmaenmawr in the absence of meetings of the committee.
§ Mr. Strachey
I understand that Penmaenmawr Urban District Council have deferred the appointment of a Food Control Committee for 1949. Under Article 7 of the Food Control Committees (Constitution) Order, 1943, the present Committee remain in office until their successors are appointed. They have not informed me that they wish to resign.
