HC Deb 13 May 1954 vol 527 c85W
41. Mr. Cooper-Key

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether Mr. Mehren. who came to this country in 1952 at the request of Her Majesty's Government to inquire into the operation of agricultural co-operative societies and the methods of distributing agricultural produce and requisities, generally, has yet made a report to him; and when he will publish it.

Sir T. Dugdale

Dr. Mehren's Report was received in February, 1953. The inquiry was concerned solely with agricultural co-operation. The Report was made confidentially to my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Scotland and myself, and we do not propose to publish it.
