HC Deb 19 May 1976 vol 911 c528W
Mr. Wigley

asked the Attorney-General if he will accept nominations to represent the interest of farmers on the Agricultural Land Tribunal for Wales from the Farmers' Union of Wales.

The Attorney-General

My noble Friend will not accept such nominations. As the hon. Member will know from the reply given to him on Thursday 13th May by my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Wales—[Vol. 911, c.228]—the present position is that the Farmers' Union of Wales is not officially recognised by agricultural Ministers. Consequently the union is not included among the organisations invited to nominate members to official committees and other bodies to which representative appointments are made by Ministers.
