HC Deb 07 July 1960 vol 626 cc49-50W
20. Mrs. Butler

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food when he expects the group examining the use of toxic chemicals in agriculture and food storage to issue its report.

Mr. Hare

It is not yet possible to say when the group, which is studying the need for further research into the effects of the use of toxic chemicals in agriculture, will issue its report. Its field is a very wide one, and evidence from a number of organisations that it has consulted is still awaited.
