HC Deb 17 March 1919 vol 113 cc1705-6
39. Brigadier-General CROFT

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Agriculture whether his attention has been called to the difficulty of British farmers in disposing of their wheat in competition with imported supplies; and whether he will consider the desirability of insisting on a definite percentage of British wheat in all loaves produced for the British public?


I must refer the hon. And gallant Member to the answer I gave to the question addressed to me on the 11th inst. by the hon. and gallant Member for Henley.

General CROFT

Is the hon. Gentleman aware of the extraordinary difficulty in which agriculturists are placed owing to the present situation in the country?


Yes, we are quite aware of it, and we are taking every step that we can to help them.
