§ SIR MARK STEWART (Kirkcudbrightshire)
I beg to ask the President of the Board of Agriculture if it is the intention of the Government to pass this session the Butterine Bill, which was read a second time on 25th June.
§ THE PRESIDENT OF THE BOARD OF AGRICULTURE (Mr. HANBURY, Preston)
I propose to reintroduce the Butterine Bill early next Session, and to take the Second Reading and the reference to a Standing Committee before Easter. I propose at the same time to shorten the period between the passing of the Bill and the date at which it will come into operation.
§ SIR EDWARD STRACHEY (Somersetshire, S.)
May I ask whether, having regard to the feeling expressed by various agricultural bodies, the right hon. Gentleman will introduce the Bill under the title of Adulterated Butter Bill.
