§ 62. Mr. Godman Irvine
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what steps he is taking to increase exports of agricultural produce.
§ Mr. Peart
The Government's additional measures for export promotion, which were announced last January, are available to assist exporters of agricultural produce. I have already discussed these measures with representatives of the trades and industries chiefly concerned with agricultural exports; and I intend shortly to hold a formal meeting with all those interested to put forward for their consideration certain specific proposals designed to ensure that the maximum benefits are obtained.
