HC Deb 20 April 1971 vol 815 c939
31. Mr. John E. B. Hill

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food whether he has yet appointed a Northern Ireland representative to the Committee of Inquiry into the Veterinary Profession.

Mr. Prior

Members are not being appointed to represent particular areas, but my colleagues and I are glad that Mr. R. A. Hamilton, C.B.E., who is an Ulsterman, has agreed to serve on this Committee.

Mr. Hill

Are the numbers of the Committee now complete, and may we know when it will start its work?

Mr. Prior

The numbers 1are now complete. We think that the Committee will start its work very soon, but it will take a considerable time to complete it.
