asked the Minister of Agriculture whether, in connection with the augmentation of staff necessitated by the Agricultural Land (Utilisation) Bill, arrangements will be made for the inclusion of an adequate proportion of women on the administrative arid technical staff and on any machinery which the Minister may set up for the purpose of carrying out the proposals in the Bill?

I fully appreciate the importance of the part which women must play in the success of the various projects embodied in the Agricultural Land (Utilisation) Bill, and I can assure the Noble Lady that the desirability of allocating an adequate place to women in the staff and organisation which it will be necessary to bring into existence for carrying out the provisions of the Bill will not be overlooked.
