§ MR. SUMMERBELL (Sunderland)
I beg to ask the hon. Member for South Somerset, as representing the President of the Board of Agriculture, if he will give a detailed Return of all plants sent out to private establishments from the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew, for the past five years, with those received in exchange during the same period.
§ SIR EDWARD STRACHEY (Somersetshire, S.)
As I stated in reply to a similar Question by the hon. Member for Enfield on June 27th, † the preparation of such a Return would entail considerable labour and expense without any corresponding advantage, and my noble friend regrets therefore that he does not see his way to grant it.
§ † See (4) Debates, clix., 935.
