HC Deb 21 March 1895 vol 31 c1567
MR. A. F. JEFFREYS (Hants, Basingstoke)

I beg to ask the President of the Board of Agriculture if he is aware that reports of the proceedings of Chambers of Commerce are regularly published by the Board of Trade in the Board of Trade Journal; whether he will consider the desirability of publishing in the same way reports of the proceedings of Chambers of Agriculture and Farmers' Clubs in the Journal of the Board of Agriculture; and if this journal can be sent to all Members who apply for it?


I believe the hon. Member correctly states the practice adopted in the case of the Board of Trade Journal, and I shall be glad to consider whether a similar arrangement could be adopted in the case of The Journal of the, Board of Agriculture. I would say, however, that the available space is more limited in the latter case, and it could not be greatly extended without an increase of its price, which I am anxious to keep as low at possible. I should be pleased to place the name of any Member of Parliament on the list of those to whom the Journal is sent gratuitously on receipt of an intimation of the desire to receive it.
