asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food how many of those who participate in the Price Reviews are from Scotland, Ulster and Wales, respectively; and if he will take steps to give reasonable representation to Wales.

Mr. Amory:

The size and composition of the farmers' team at Price Review discussions is left entirely to the discretion of the three Farmers' Unions concerned. At the 1957 Annual Review, the National Farmers' Union of Scotland nominated six representatives; the Ulster Farmers' Union nominated seven representatives; the National Farmers' Union of England and Wales nominated ten representatives, including a member of the Union's Welsh Committee.
