asked the Minister of Agriculture what adverse criticism has been submitted in regard to the proposals in Command Paper 6454, dealing with alterations to the milk and dairies administration; and whether he has considered representations that many local authorities having existing officers could efficiently discharge the necessary duties without the appointing of additional officers?

I have received and considered a number of representations from local authorities against the proposed transfer to my Department of their powers relating to milk production on the farm, including certain representations in the sense indicated in the second part of the Question.
