§ 79. Mr. NOEL BUXTON
asked the Minister of Agriculture at what places experiments dealing with arable stock farming are now in operation under the direct or indirect control of the Ministry?
Experiments on arable stock farming, aided by the Ministry, are being conducted at the following places:
In addition the Oxford Institute of Research in Agricultural Economics has made arrangements to observe and obtain records and accounts of eight other farms in different parts of the country. No experiments of this nature are now under the direct control of my Department.
- Hucknall, Nottinghamshire;
- Denham, Middlesex;
- Resparveth, Cornwall;
- Reaseheath, Cheshire;
- Newport, Salop;
- Rawcliffe, Yorkshire.
§ Mr. BUXTON
Has anything been done by way of grants to independent farmers to encourage experiments by them?
§ Brigadier-General CLIFTON BROWN
Have any accounts or results been published in relation to these experiments, and may we know them?
Perhaps the hon. Gentleman will put down a question to the Secretary of State for Scotland.
