§ 2. Mr. C. BATHURST
asked the President of the Board of Agriculture whether he has received a resolution from the Central Chamber of Agriculture to the effect that an opportunity should be given to agriculturists, through the medium of their leading organisations, to consider schemes for the improvement of live stock before they are brought into operation;. and, if so, whether he proposes to comply with its terms?
§ Mr. GULLAND
A resolution from the Central Chamber of Agriculture was received by my right hon. Friend on the 17th July last. It was substantially in the terms recited by the hon. Member, 2041 but did not contain the words "through the medium of their leading organisations." My right hon. Friend concurs generally in the views expressed in the resolution sent to him, and every opportunity has been taken, and will continue to be taken, by the Board to invite suggestions on the scheme for the improvement of live stock from the provincial councils and their live-stock committees, which are thoroughly representative of agricultural opinion in all parts of the country.
