HC Deb 14 March 1922 vol 151 c1973
98. Lieut.-Colonel A. MURRAY

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether, for the convenience of agriculturists, he is taking steps to collect together into one Consolidation Act the measures connected with agriculture now upon the Statute Book?

Major BARNSTON (Comptroller of the Household)

I have been asked to reply. It is proposed to introduce a Bill to consolidate all the enactments relating to agricultural holdings in England and Wales, and a similar Bill for Scotland; but it would not be practicable to include in these Bills the provisions of every measure connected with agriculture, many of which apply also to other industries.

Lieut.-Colonel MURRAY

Can the hon. and gallant Gentleman say when that Bill will be introduced?


I cannot.
