§ 64. Mr. SHEPPERSON
asked the Prime Minister whether, seeing that at the economic conference of the Allies, held at Paris, 1916, a definite undertaking was given by our representatives that agriculture should be defended against economic aggression; that a similar undertaking was given by our representatives at Genoa this year; that agricultural produce is excluded from the provisions of both parts of the Safeguarding of Industries Act; and that, in consequence of the failure of successive Governments to adopt any method for the carrying out of the Paris resolution in respect of agriculture, the industry is in an acute state of depression, he will say what action he proposes to take in the matter?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
I would refer my hon. Friend to the statements which have recently been made in this House, indicating the steps which are being taken to deal with the agricultural problem.
