HC Deb 10 May 1956 vol 552 c119W
Captain Kerby

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food how soon he proposes to reduce his pest services from eight to two, as recommended in the White Paper embodying the Report of Sir Arton Wilson's Committee; and if he will meanwhile reduce the expenditure by the existing pest services by 80 per cent.

Mr. Amory

The Wilson Report covers a very wide field and no decisions will be taken until I have fully considered the views of my county executive committees and others directly concerned.
