§ 43. Mr. Brocklebank-Fowler
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science why he proposes to close the pomology and food and beverages divisions at Long Ashton research station in 1983–84.
§ Mr. William Shelton
Long Ashton research station is grant-aided by the Agricultural Research Council. The future of the pomology and food and beverage divisions of the station is a matter for decision by the council and not for my Department.
