§ 56. Mr. T. W. Jones
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will appoint a representative of the Welsh Beekeepers' Association on the Domestic Food Producers' Council and on the Bee Diseases Committee.
§ Mr. John Hare
The members of both these bodies are appointed in a personal capacity and not as representing any particular society or association. Welsh interests and beekeeping matters generally 65W are adequately represented on the National Council for Domestic Food Production, and I do not propose to increase the Council's membership at present. The Bee Disease Advisory Committee has recently recommended an increase in its membership, and I have agreed to the addition of a member for Wales. The appointment will be made soon.
