HC Deb 23 January 1930 vol 234 cc337-8
78. Mr. ALBERY

asked the Minister of Agriculture if he can give any figures demonstrating any improvement in agricultural conditions in this country during the last six months?


I regret that it is not practicable in the form of an answer to a Parliamentary question to make a statement of the statistical details which the hon. Member appears to desire, but if he has any particular subject in mind I shall be glad to supply such information as is available.

Viscount WOLMER

Can the right hon. Gentleman say yet whether farming pays?


If the Noble Lord will look at the Order Paper, he will see a Supplementary Estimate which is coming up to-day.
