It has been decided that the proceedings of the Agricultural Conference should be private, and in these circumstances I am not prepared to answer questions as to the matters before it.

Will the Minister explain why this Conference is being held in private, seeing that it is a matter of great public importance and especially as the right hon. Gentleman has not announced his policy?
