HC Deb 24 March 1958 vol 585 c4W
Sir A. Bossom

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will introduce legislation to permit greater agricultural representation on river boards, so that the farmers' interests may be fully safeguarded.

Mr. John Hare

Representation on river boards was carefully considered when the River Boards Act was introduced in 1948 and I have no reason to believe that agricultural interests are not taken fully into account by boards as now constituted.
