HC Deb 01 March 1917 vol 90 cc2127-8
26. Mr. LUNDON

asked if the Irish Food Committee will in the first instance deal with people who refuse to give land for conacre to the poor in the cases of exemptions?


The Department of Agriculture will be advised by its Advisory Committee, and will decide whether to enter for tillage or to select some person or authority to till land as to which there is default.

27. Mr. LUNDON

asked if the Irish Food Production Committee will publish weekly lists of those who may be granted exemption from the tillage scheme, and the reasons for such exemption?


I will ascertain whether any good purpose is likely to be served by such a publication.
