§ Captain Kerby
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he is aware of the complaints made by registered egg producers regarding the voting procedure of the recent Egg Marketing Board elections; and whether he will appoint an independent committee of inquiry into this matter.
§ Mr. Godber
No complaints have been made to me about these voting procedures, which are laid down in the Egg Marketing Scheme and have been approved by Parliament. Under the Scheme the responsibility for conducting elections is placed upon the Board, and there would seem to be no reason for my right hon. Friend to intervene.
