HC Deb 11 December 1922 vol 159 c2357
40. Captain TERRELL

asked the Minister of Agriculture if he is now in a position to make any definite statement as to the assistance or relief which the State is prepared to give to helping farmers who may find themselves in acute, financial difficulty owing to the absence of capital entailed by the purchase of their holdings?

The MINISTER of AGRICULTURE (Sir Robert Sanders)

I am not yet in a position to make any statement on this subject, but I hope to receive the Report of the Committee which is considering the matter before the end of this year.
