§ 39. Major WHELER
asked the Prime Minister whether he is aware that practically all agricultural societies and organisations are opposed to the proposed continuance of the Daylight Saving Act for this year; and whether, even if he cannot consider the abolition of the Act, he will favourably consider a proposal to shorten its operation to the period frm 1st May to 31st August?
§ Mr. SHORTT
The Prime Minister has asked me to reply to this question. I would refer the hon. and gallant Member to the answers which I gave on Tuesday on this subject.
§ Mr. INSKIP
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware of the disastrous prolongation of the harvest in the Western Counties of Scotland owing to the operation of the Daylight Saving Act, and will he make inquiries of the farming interest in Galloway and the adjoining counties as to the effects of that Act?
