§ 18. Mr. G. LAMBERT
asked the President of the Board of Agriculture whether a resolution has been received from county war committees that no more men, even general service men, should be taken from the land for the next two months; and whether it is proposed to act in the spirit of these resolutions?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the BOARD of AGRICULTURE (Sir Richard Winfrey)
The Board have received the resolution. My right hon. Friend has been assured by the Under-Secretary of State for War that the War Office is doing everything possible to leave as many men as can be left for agriculture.
