HC Deb 22 December 1964 vol 704 c227W
97. Sir P. Agnew

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will make a statement on the reasons for the suspension of the operations of the clock auction system of the Gloucestershire Marketing Society Ltd. at Cheltenham, and the prospects for resumption of the experiment.

Mr. Peart

The Gloucestershire Marketing Society Limited have suspended the experimental clock auction because it did not appear to be giving complete satisfaction to users of its market at Cheltenham. It is for the Society to decide whether the experiment should be resumed.
