HC Deb 20 May 1954 vol 527 c137W
75. Sir W. Smithers

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether, to mark the ending of food rationing on 3rd July, he will disband the agricultural executive committees on the same date.

Mr. Nugent

No. The end of food rationing is not directly related to the functions of county agricultural executive committees, except in so far as the increased production from our farms which has helped to bring about the end of food rationing has been the result of their leadership in the counties.
