§ 50. Mr. Biggs-Davison
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what representations he has received for the representation of agriculture on the National Economic Development Council.
§ Mr. Selwyn Lloyd
I have received a number of letters, and the matter has been the subject of several Parliamentary Questions. I have discussed the whole matter personally with the President of the National Farmers' Union and explained to him that members of the Council are not intended to represent particular industries. Arrangements are, however, being made to allow of full consultation between the Council's staff and the industry.
