HC Deb 13 July 1959 vol 609 c4W
Sir A. Bossom

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will consider the introduction of statutory national mark grades for apples and pears in place of the recommended grades.

Mr. John Hare

If my hon. Friend is thinking of a compulsory grading scheme, this can at present be introduced only on the initiative of producers under the provisions of the Agricultural Marketing Act, 1958.
