HC Deb 01 December 1930 vol 245 c1788
53. Captain GUNSTON

asked the Minister of Agriculture if he can give figures showing the number of million bushels of wheat grown in Canada, the Argentine, Australia, France, and England in the years 1919 and 1930?


As the reply necessarily contains a number of figures I propose, with the permission of the hon. and gallant Member, to circulate a statement in the OFFICIAL REPORT.

Following is the statement:
