HC Deb 12 May 1953 vol 515 c74W
Mr. Baker

asked the Minister of Agriculture when his Department will be ready to extend the number and scope of producer marketing boards for agricultural products.

Sir T. Dugdale

The promotion of marketing schemes under the Agricultural Marketing Acts is a matter for the producers of the commodities concerned. As regards the attitude of the Government towards such schemes, I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply I gave to the hon. Member for Newbury (Mr. Hurd) on 13th November, 1952.
