Yes, Sir. My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Scotland and I, in cooperation with the Agricultural Research Council, are taking steps to set up a Vegetable Research Station. The various interests concerned have been invited to nominate representatives to serve on the independent governing body under which the station will operate. As soon as constituted, the governing body will proceed to consider the siting, staffing and equipment of the station.
