§ Mr. Harold Davies
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what advice or instructions he has given to county agricultural executive committees in the last three years regarding the implementation of Part II of the Agriculture Act, 1947.
§ Mr. Godber
My right hon. Friend's advice to county agricultural executive committees in recent years has been that the disciplinary powers of the Agriculture Act, 1947, should be used only in really bad cases when other measures to bring about an improvement have been tried and failed.
