Oral Answers to Questions — Food Supplies – in the House of Commons at 12:00 am on 27th July 1949.
Alert me about debates like this
asked the Minister of Food whether he will state the duties and areas of the 24 pensionable posts of district livestock inspectors, male, advertised in the "Farmers' Weekly" of 8th July, 1949.
The duties will consist, as they do at present, of supervising the grading panels which classify fat stock. The areas will remain unchanged.
Could the right hon. Lady explain why it is that special officers are required to supervise grading?
The hon. Gentleman is displaying an ignorance of the subject. He will remember that these officers were first employed by the Livestock Commission long before the war, and that all we are doing now is to establish 24 of the 36 temporary inspectors.
