HL Deb 19 December 1988 vol 502 c1235WA
Lord Gallacher

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether they will appoint a representative of consumers to the Fruit Research Consultative Committee announced on 5th December.

Baroness Trumpington

No. The fruit RCC, like all RCCs, was set up to provide primarily an industry view of the sector's R&D needs. It is nonrepresentational and its membership encompasses a wide range of interests and technical expertise. It will consult widely, thereby providing an opportunity for the submission of consumer views.
