MR. NORTON (Kent, Tunbridge)

asked the First Lord of the Treasury, If he can give the House any further information with regard to the formation of the new Department of Agriculture?

A Bill to create the now Department is in draft, and is receiving the careful consideration of the Government. I hope it will be in our power to introduce it very shortly.
