HC Deb 06 July 1964 vol 698 cc29-30W
86. Mr. Kitson

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food whether he will reduce the discrepancy allowance on the analysis of fertiliser compounds from 10 per cent. to 5 per cent.; and what approaches have been made to his Department from the trade for these alterations to be made.

Mr. Soames

I am not aware of any approaches from the trade, but representations have been received from the National Farmers Union, which it has been asked to submit, with supporting evidence, to the Standing Advisory Committee whose advice I should need before there could be any question of amendment of the Regulations under the Fertilisers and Feeding Stuffs Act, 1926.
