HC Deb 20 May 1954 vol 527 c137W
79. Mr. Hurd

asked the Minister of Agriculture how many objections to the Fatstock Marketing Scheme have been received; and when the inquiry will be held.

Mr. Nugent

Forty-two objections and representations have been received. These are being sent to the promoters so that they may consider whether they wish to proceed with the Scheme. A decision whether to hold a public inquiry will be taken in the light of their reply.
