HC Deb 29 July 1960 vol 627 c217W
Captain Kerby

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will order an inquiry into the adjournment, contrary to statutory provision, of the Disciplinary Committee meeting of the Tomato and Cucumber Marketing Board held on 19th July last.

Mr. Godber

In the reply given by my right hon. Friend's predecessor on 25th July to the hon. Member for Lincoln (Mr. de Freitas) and my hon. Friend the Member for Edinburgh, West (Mr. Stodart) he expressed his dislike of the circumstances that led to the adjournment of this Disciplinary Committee. An inquiry would not add to our knowledge of these circumstances. I would, however, refer my hon. Friend to the concluding part of the reply of 25th July.
