Minhinnick, Gordon (Sir), 1902-1992 :And now we come to the question of the Minister of Agriculture. 6 December 1949

Reference Number: E-549-q-01-061

A scene in Parliament with the Prime Minister, Sidney Holland, addressing a group of Members of Parliament around a table. He appears to be allocating portfolios, but the mention of the position of Minister of Agriculture has caused all of the group to dive out of sight, or hide behind chairs or curtains. Refers to the perceived unpopularity of the position of Minister of Agriculture at the time.
