HC Deb 28 October 1953 vol 518 cc383-5W
Mr. Bevins

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will make a statement on the compensation provisions for

redundant members of the Raw Cotton Commission.

Mr. P. Thorneycroft

Much progress has been made with the consideration of a scheme for compensating those of the Commission's staff who have become redundant as a result of the increased use of the option to buy raw cotton otherwise than through the Raw Cotton Commission, but I cannot yet make a detailed statement.
