asked the Minister of Agriculture how many personnel of the National Agricultural Advisory Service were employed at his Department's exhibit at the 1948 and 1949 Royal Shows, respectively; and what was the total cost of the exhibit in each year.

Mr. T. Williams:

Approximately 50 N.A.A.S. officers were in attendance each day at the Royal Show this year and a somewhat larger number in 1948, as demonstrators on the many different features of the N.A.A.S. section of the Ministry's exhibit. The cost of the Ministry's exhibit was approximately £7,500 in 1948 and is estimated at roughly the same figure for 1949.
