HC Deb 28 July 1960 vol 627 c190W
101. Mr. Holt

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food whether he is aware that the Disciplinary Committee meeting of the Tomato and Cucumber Marketing Board, held on 19th July, was illegally adjourned, and that this resulted in a waste of tomato growers' time and money; and what action he will take to ensure that the Disciplinary Committee of the Tomato and Cucumber Marketing Board carries out its statutory duties in future.

Mr. Godber

As my right hon. Friend's predecessor replied on 25th July to the hon. Member for Lincoln (Mr. de Freitas) and my hon. Friend the Member for Edinburgh, West (Mr. Stodart), we are aware that the meeting of the Tomato and Cucumber Board's Disciplinary Committee was adjourned, and much dislike the circumstances which led to this. As regards future meetings of disciplinary committees, I would refer the hon. Member to the latter part of the reply of 25th July.
