§ Mr. Lennox-Boyd,
pursuant to his reply [OFFICIAL REPORT, 17th May, 1956; Vol. 552, c. 195], supplied the following information:
The three African representatives were chosen by the Provincial Commissioners on the advice of the Agricultural Department and Local Authorities. They are all members of Co-operative Societies.
Under existing legislation co-opted members of the Board are not entitled to vote and are not counted to form a quorum. I understand, however, that amending legislation to provide for the full representation of African producers on the Board will be introduced.
