HC Deb 27 June 1916 vol 83 cc726-7
61. Mr. PETO

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Agriculture if the Board will publish the evidence upon which were based the Introduction and Part I. of the Final Report of the Departmental Committee appointed to consider the settlement and employment on the land of discharged sailors and soldiers.


The Committee did not consider it necessary that the evidence referred to should be published, and for this reason and for the sake of economy this view is also that of the Board.


Can any hon. Member who particularly wishes to make use of this evidence have a copy for his private use?


Yes; we would do our best to make it available. Copies exist, and by permission of the person giving evidence I should think it might be made use of.
