§ Captain Kerby
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food how many registered growers of potatoes have been licensed as grower-salesmen by the Potato Marketing Board; how many applications for such licences have been refused; and how many of the unsuccessful applicants had held licences from his Department prior to the coming into force of the Potato Marketing Scheme, 1955.
§ Mr. John Hare
The licensing of grower-salesmen is a matter for the Potato Marketing Board under the Marketing Scheme and inquiries about the outcome of applications for licences should be addressed to the Board. Under the Scheme, unsuccessful applicants have the right to arbitration.
