HC Deb 16 July 1931 vol 255 c763
66. Mr. LEES

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he has considered the resolutions passed and sent to him by the National Agricultural Labourers' and Rural Workers' Union, the National Farmers' Union, and the Workers' Union, asking for a statement of the Government's policy on the wheat quota; and whether he can state his reply to these organisations?


My right hon. Friend has received copies of resolutions passed by various branches of the unions concerned with agricultural workers, urging the Government to adopt the principle of a wheat quota. These resolutions have been acknowledged, but my right hon. Friend is not in a position to make any announcement on the subject at present.


Has the Minister of Agriculture already made a statement to a meeting of the Liberal party in this House?


It is obvious that I could not reply to that question.
