HC Deb 03 May 1928 vol 216 cc1899-900
58. Viscount SANDON

asked the Minister of Agriculture when the Agricultural Credits Bill will be introduced; and if Parliamentary time will be found to pass it through all its stages this Session?


I have given notice to introduce the Agricultural Credits Bill this afternoon and I have every hope that it will be possible to pass it through all its stages this Session.


Will that Bill be preceded by a Resolution in Committee of Ways and Means?


No, it is not a Bill mainly for public expenditure. I think the Resolution can be taken after the Bill.

Viscount SANDON

Is "hope" the utmost that the right hon. Gentleman can say?
