HC Deb 23 March 1971 vol 814 c80W
Mr. Strang

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food (1) what consultations he has had with the National Farmers' Union on the future method of financing the Agricultural Training Board;

(2) what consultation he has had with the National Union of Agricultural and Allied Workers about the future of the Agricultural Training Board, in the light of his decision to end the present system of support for agriculture.

Mr. Anthony Stodart

There has been no need for any such consultations. These matters are already subject to review, and any consultations would be undertaken by my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Employment at the appropriate time.
