§ 36. Sir JOHN SPEAR
asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office if he is aware of the delay and inconvenience caused by the present method which has to be followed by farmers in obtaining permits to sell hay and straw not required by the Government; and will he devise some plan which would obviate such delay?
§ Mr. FORSTER
The system is found to be working satisfactorily, and I am not aware that it is causing general delay and inconvenience. Some delay may occasionally occur, owing to exceptional circumstances, and if my hon. Friend would furnish me with particulars of specific cases, I will have them inquired into at once.
