§ 31. Mr. STURROCK
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Agriculture whether action is contemplated in the direction of having oats controlled at a moderate price?
I have been asked to reply. The price of oats has fallen since the harvest and a further fall is expected as the crop moves more freely and the larger supply of imported oats and maize coming forward becomes more generally felt. In the circumstances, I am in agreement with my right hon. Friend the President of the Board of Agriculture that action in the matter is not required at the present moment. The situation, however, is being carefully watched.
