§ Mr. OLIVER LOCKER - LAMPSON
asked the Prime Minister how long the post of Permanent Secretary to the Board of Agriculture has remained vacant, and the reason for the delay in appointing an occupant?
§ Mr. RUNCIMAN
The Prime Minister has asked me to answer this question. Sir Thomas Elliott does not vacate the post of Permanent Secretary to the Board until the 3rd February, and Sir Sydney Olivier will take up his duties immediately. There has, therefore, been no delay at all.
