HC Deb 09 December 1908 vol 198 c470

I beg to ask the hon. Member for South Somerset, as representing the President of the Board of Agriculture, if his attention has been called to the committee appointed by President Roosevelt to investigate and make suggestions as to the ways in which the social, sanitary, and economic connitions of American farms can be improved; and if the Board of Agriculture intend to proceed on the same lines, or to initiate legislation, or take other steps to assist agriculture generally in this country.


The Board are aware of the appointment of the Commission to which my hon. friend refers. They will carefully study its Report as soon as it is published.
