§ MAJOR RASCH (Essex, S.E.)
I beg to ask the President of the Board of Agriculture whether his attention has been called to the attacks of the pea thripp in the East of England; and if he will issue instructions for dealing with it?
We have not hitherto received any complaints as to the prevalence of the pea and bean weevil during the present year. Information and instructions respecting it were issued in the form of a leaflet last year, several thousand copies of which were then 545 circulated amongst agriculturists, especially in Essex. The leaflet is kept in stock, and we shall be very happy to supply copies free of charge to anyone who may desire to receive them.
