HC Deb 06 March 1906 vol 153 c284
MR. COURTHOPE (Sussex, Rye)

To ask the first Lord of the Treasury whether, in view of the importance of canal communication to agriculture, he will take steps to appoint representatives of the agricultural industry as additional members of the Royal Commission on Canals and Waterways, in order to secure the adequate representation of the agricultural industry upon the Commission.

(Answered by Sir H. Campbell-Bannerman.) I am not prepared to propose any further names for this Commission, which is already large and representative, and includes several members who are much interested in agriculture.
