63. Captain Kerby

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will instruct the Committee of Investigation set up under Section 9 of the Agricultural Marketing Act, 1931, to conduct an inquiry into the operation of the Tomato and Cucumber Marketing Scheme.

Mr. Godber

No. My right hon. Friend has no cause to do so, but I should like to make clear in case my hon. Friend has in mind the suggestion that an independent person should investigate the voting procedure at the annual general meeting of registered producers in March, 1957, that as my right hon. Friend has already indicated to my hon. Friend he would be glad to help to the extent of recommending the names of independent persons for this purpose.
