§ Sir A. CHURCHMAN
asked the Minister of Agriculture, whether he proposes to take any steps to facilitate the combination of co-operative dairy societies into one federation, as recommended by the Departmental Committee on the Distribution and Prices of Agricultural produce?1049W
§ Sir R. SANDERS
The kind of combination to which the question refers is clearly a matter for the initiative of the societies themselves in the first instance, and I think it might be retarded rather than facilitated by official intervention. The Ministry's officers, however, do now, and will in the future, use every opportunity to promote movements of this nature when it seems likely that their assistance will be helpful.
