HC Deb 01 March 1926 vol 192 cc1015-6
37. Mr. BUXTON

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether his Department is promoting experiments in arable stock farming by means of grants to farmers?


No grants are made direct to farmers by my Department, as it is not itself conducting investigations into arable stock farming; but in a few cases the various authorities aided by the Ministry to conduct experiments and investigations in this subject (of whom the principal is the Oxford Institute for Research in Agricultural Economics) have made with the occupiers of holdings arrangements which involve or may involve pecuniary assistance.
