HC Deb 15 June 1955 vol 542 c16W
Mr. Dodds

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food the names of the consumers' representatives appointed to the Potato Marketing Board.

Mr. Amory

Persons appointed by the Minister under Section 1 of the Agricultural Marketing Act, 1949, are not representatives of particular interests. My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Scotland and I have appointed four members to the Potato Marketing Board. Their names, which were announced to the Press on 26th May last, are as follows:

  • Sir Patrick Laird, K.B.E., C.B., F.R.S.E.
  • Mr. L. G. Fisher, C.M.G.
  • Mr. E. P. Harries, C.B.E.
  • Mrs. M. Courtney, J.P.
These members are, in my opinion, well qualified within the requirements of Section 1 of the Act.
