§ Captain Kerby
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he is aware that certain persons, since approved by him to act as chairmen of disciplinary committees of agricultural marketing boards, had, before he gave his approval, so acted without his approval, contrary to the provisions of the Agricultural Marketing Acts, 1931 to 1949; and whether he will therefore withdraw his approval from them.
§ Mr. Maclay
I assume that the gentlemen referred to are those who were approved on 20th December, 1956, by the then Secretary of State for appointment by the Tomato and Cucumber Marketing Board as chairmen of a disciplinary committee. I know of no reason why that approval should now be withdrawn.
