HC Deb 05 May 1958 vol 587 c75W
45. Captain Kerby

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what agreement has been made between his Department and the promoters of the proposed Apple and Pear Publicity Scheme in connection with the costs of the forthcoming court action to decide if such a scheme comes within the scope of the Marketing Acts.

Mr. John Hare

No definite proposal for any such agreement has been put to me, but if it were, I am afraid I should have to say that it would not be appropriate for me to assist financially an action that seeks to challenge the legal advice which I have been given.
