§ 39. Sir A. HOLBROOK
asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he is aware that a great portion of land in this country needs lime and that farmers are at present unable to meet the cost of liming their land; and whether, as lime furnishes a sound basis of credit, the unexhausted value of lime in the land being deemed a tenant-right, he will consider the desirability of arranging for credits to farmers in respect of money expended by them in liming their land
§ The MINISTER of AGRICULTURE (Mr. Guinness)
I am aware that 208 much agricultural land would benefit by proper liming. The question of including tenant-right as an asset upon which loans might be secured is being considered in connection with the proposed Bill dealing with agricultural credit.
