HC Deb 03 July 1986 vol 100 c615W
Mr. Soames

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food whether he has decided to hold a public inquiry into the Potato Marketing Board's proposals to amend the potato marketing scheme.

Mr. Jopling

I and my right hon. Friends the Secretaries of State for Scotland and Wales have carefully considered the objections we have received to the board's proposals. We have decided to direct that a public inquiry be held and have appointed His Honour Judge David Peck to be chairman. The inquiry will begin on 30 July and will be held in Church house, Westminster.
