HC Deb 19 December 1966 vol 738 c205W
101. Mr. Goodhart

asked the Minister of Labour why the administrative headquarters of the Agricultural, Horticultural and Forestry Industry Training Board is to be located in Beckenham instead of some town more closely connected with the agricultural industry.

Mr. Gunter

I understand that the Board considered the arguments for and against having its headquarters somewhere in the provinces, but decided that the balance of advantage was strongly in favour of a headquarters in the London area.
