§ MR. LOGAN (Leicester, Harborough)
I beg to ask the President of the Board of Agriculture if he can now state to the House the result of his communications with the Treasury as to the possibility of exteuding to Members of this House, who desire to distribute the publications of the Board of Agriculture, the privileges now confined to Agricultural Societies, Village Institutions, and similar bodies?
§ THE PRESIDENT OF THE BOARD OF AGRICULTURE (Mr. H. GARDNER,) Essex, Saffron Walden
Yes; I am glad to say that the Treasury have found themselves able to extend to Members of Parliament the same privileges with regard to the publications of my Department as those which are allowed to Agricultural Societies and other Institutions. We shall now be in a position to supply copies of those publications to Members of Parliament at half the published price, provided that not less than 20 copies are taken, and that they are intended for gratuitous distribution.
