HC Deb 20 April 1931 vol 251 cc596-7
43. Mr. ALBERY

asked the Minister of Agriculture what action has yet been taken resulting from the advice of the Agricultural Machinery Advisory Committee?


The Ministry is carrying out a programme of demonstrations of agricultural machinery, which has been approved by the committee, in mole draining, orchard machinery and harvesting. During the six months since the committee was established, seven demonstrations have been carried out. I may add that, on the recommendation of the committee arrangements are contemplated for the trial of certain types of machine, to which attention was drawn by the delegates who recently visited Canada and the United States to study the use of machinery there.
