MARKETING PRODUCE. I" A very important meeting was held at Lampetcr on Monday when the Car- digan Horticultural Sub-Committee met Mr. J. R. Hall, a representahve of the Marketing" Section of the Food Production Department, and discussed a scheme for the marketirig of surplus produce. The broad outline of the sug- gestion is that every county should have, through its Horticultural Committee, an organisation which can give instan- taneously to the Government full par- ticulars as to crops and supplies of all kinds of produce. The aim of the Board of Agriculture and Fisheries (of which the Food Production Department forms a part) is to organise the market- ing of all the produce of the land on lines similar to those of Denmark and Holland-lines which have proved strikingly successful. Both the countries named have built up their trade on the principles of co-operative societies, and the new scheme which was put forward at Lampeter was for the Committee to form a County Association with collecting centres at convenient points, vegetables, etc., to be dumped at the centre, and sent away in big consignments. In leaflet F.P. 209H, the whole matter is admirably set forth. The Department appeals primarily to the patriotism of the people, but points out 'that in a time of scarcity the scheme 'cannot fail to be self-supporting. The counties of North Wale.s have taken the work up with enthusiasm, and Merioneth, Car- narvon, Montgomery, Flint, and Den- bigh are joined in otie big association. Only ten counties in England have not yet made the necessary arrangements, and these will undoubtedly do so within the next few weeks. The Marketing Executive which is to do the work is organised and appointed at public con- ) ferenees called in th* various districts bv the Horticultural Committee, and the work of the ExecutVe is not only, to arrange the export ol produce to other counties, but to secure equable distribution within its own area. There is a financial aspect to this matter and a Guarantee Fund has h, be secured. This Fund is similar to the capital of the ordinary co-operative society- and the sum suggested is ^2,000, which would be obtained by the sale of shares. As there are certain grants from the Board, it need be nothing more than a guarantee. In North Wales, by the grouping of counties and the pooling of grants, much more is made possible but if Cardigan takes up the scheme it can, by working through the existing societies, do more to prevent waste and ensure fair prices than has ever been I the case before. The Tregaron Society is a striking instance of what a \farmers' co-operative society can do, and to put it plainly, it is an extension of Tregaron methods that the pro- moters have in view. The County Association then becomes a central organisation for the several individual societies, and the Government is in a postion to ascertain what output may be secured from each county what their special producd is; what the resources are, and to help materially in the matter of seeds, etc., as well as providing always a certain sale at the current prices. It would be quite in accordance with the wishes of the Department for a four-ton consignment of potatoes to be put on rail addressed to the Ministry of Food, and the growers would thus have no trouble at all about finding a market. An important question is that of Registration, and it must be clearly understood that new societies would affiliate to the County Association and would then secure all the benefits which the Board offers. These cannot be obtained unless the society was regis- tered before June ist or is now affili- ated to the County Association. All registered societies are of limited liability, whilst in the case of those unregistered the secretary and individual members of the Committee are liable. Another matter of prac- tical difficulty in Cardiganshire is that of transport, and although the leaflet referred to states that the Ministry of Food has no commercial vehicles, Mr. Hall told Monday's meeting that since the issue of the pamphlet this had been remedied, and now not only vehicles but also petrol could be obtained by county associations. This work would also have the help and guidance of the transport officers, horse officers, and other officials already at work, and the village depots would be worked by a committee with a secretary and trea- surer and, if necessary, an honorarium would be paid for these minor positions. This is a matter of much importance to farmers, smallholders, and allotment holders, and it is not easy to set forth all the advantages which would follow its adoption. The Nortel Wales scheme will be vatched with much interest. If Cardiganshire can arrange and work such an Association, it will put money into the pockets of the growers. No- body denies that difficulties exist but they exist only to be overcome, and for the first time the Government of the kingdom is realising the value of the food grower and helping him in a practical fashion. This fact alone is sufficient to warrant taking up the work.
A POPULAR HONOUR. The honours which have been con- ferred upon the leaders of the Ministry of Food have been well earned. To Lord Rhondda, who attains a Viscountcy, the success of this much- harassed department is Largely due, and his lieutenant, Mr. Clynes, who becomes a Privy Councillor, has proved an able and capable administrator. At the time Lord Rhondda left the L.G.B. to take up the organisation of food supplies he made it perfectly clear that he was going to watch the interests of the consumer. From this he has never wa-v-ei-ed and although many attempts have been made, both fair and unfair, to move him from his resolution, and to alter this tendency, so evident in all the dealings of the Ministry, the inter- ests of the working people have never been overlooked. Lord Rhondda brought to bear upon an absolutely new problem the skill of a business mind far above the average. j A profound student of ,economic prob- lems, he set out to serve the consumer ¡ with the full knowledge of what that* resolution meant. Business methods have characterised everything this Department has attempted, and in the place of confusion has come order, and in the place of dissatisfaction amongst the people fair and equitable distribu- tion. There is no honour in the list. which has been more truly earned than that one which has been conferred upon the Food Controller, and, although the work was taken up at the call of his chief and without the thought of doing anything more than serving his fellows, it is remarkable that practically the whole of the British Press has been unanimous in its agreement that this mark of His Majesty's favour to the Food Controller is the) most popular of the whole of the birthday honours. His Lordship's rationing schemes have been welcomed by the workers who have been enabled to buy sufficient food at reasonable prices, and the queue has been absolutely abolished. The Manchester Guardian" says of the rationing scheme that it was "a feat of extraordinary difficulty which, as though' by miracle, has given satis- faction in a department which in highU-u-ig^Msed Germany has from the first excited the most violent re- sentment." Those who have Wn in close touch with Lord Rhondda make secret of the fact that his illness is due very strenuous work at the Ministn of Food, and when he is able to re-ume dutv it will be in ::111 )oability -,rectly 4.Ur -mvice of his docf J "e pSmlr spoke for tKc ,le anc'to again
