§ Mr. CHARLES BATHURST
asked whether any application has yet been made by the Board of Agriculture for any grant from the Development Fund; and, if so, what is the amount applied for and for what purpose or purposes it is intended.
§ Mr. BATHURST
Will any steps be taken to secure that the quarter of a million promised by the right hon. Gentleman during the Second Reading Debate of last year's Finance Bill for purely agricultural purposes shall be so applied?
§ Mr. LLOYD-GEORGE
I hope to make a statement with regard to the matter in the course of the next few days. I trust it will be seen that the names of the Commission will be the best guarantee that the sum of money, which will really exceed a quarter of a million, will be applied very largely to agricultural development.
