§ MR. DALY (Monaghan, S.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he can state if the money placed at the disposal of the Board of Agriculture is about being used for the support of creameries in Ireland; and, if so, whether, instead of such expenditure, he will consider the advisability of encouraging farmers by supplying them with loans to procure separators to be used by their families, and thereby encourage home industry.
§ MR. WYNDHAM
The answer to the first query is in the negative. The Department is considering the question of making loans to farmers to enable them to purchase separators.
