asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what consideration he has given to the Report of the Plant Committee on the control of fowl pest; and what action he proposes to take on its recommendations.
As my right hon. Friend said in reply to my hon. Friend the Member for Ashford (Mr. Deedes) on 26th February, it is hoped that the Report of the Plant Committee will be published by the end of this month. My right hon. Friend is at present considering the recommendations of the Committee.
