§ Mr. LONSDALE
asked the Chief Secretary whether any steps have yet been taken by the Department of Agriculture to establish a research station for the investigation of scientific questions bearing upon agriculture?
§ Mr. BIRRELL
Though the Department of Agriculture have been doing a certain amount of research work in connection with agricultural problems, they have been unable as yet, through want of funds, to establish a special research station for this purpose. Such a research station is in their opinion greatly needed.
