HC Deb 17 December 1956 vol 562 cc98-9W
66. Mr. J. E. B. Hill

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what study and inspection of the best overseas practice in the design, construction, and use of agricultural buildings and fixed equipment are at present being carried out by officers of his Department.

Mr. Nugent

Publications and reports on overseas practice in these matters are systematically studied by officers of the Department; and officers are nominated as opportunity offers for overseas conferences, study courses and inspection tours. In these ways, every effort is made to keep abreast of new developments in other countries.
