§ 63. Brigadier Medlicott
asked the Minister of Agriculture how soon he expects to be able to make a decision on the tomato and cucumber scheme submitted to his Department by the industry in 1948.
Mr. T. Williams
As the first new marketing scheme submitted since the war the tomato and cucumber scheme has raised a number of difficult points of principle which have prolonged its consideration and the usual discussions with the promoters and other interests concerned. I hope that the terms of the scheme will be finalised at a very early date and that it will not be long before it is submitted to Parliament for approval.
