HC Deb 21 January 1953 vol 510 c31W
66. Mrs. Mann

asked the Minister of Food the particular qualifications required by those conducting the National Food Survey; by whom they are appointed; and from which section of the community.

Major Lloyd George

The fieldwork of the National Food Survey has been conducted, under the general direction of my Department, by a market research organisation with wide experience of the techniques employed.

I do not inquire into the social status of the staff appointed by this organisation, as I am concerned only with their technical competence and the reliability of the results they obtain.

I have no doubt, however, that they are drawn from the same sections of the community as they were under the previous Administration.
