HC Deb 06 May 1931 vol 252 cc389-90
49. Viscount WOLMER

asked the Prime Minister whether his attention has been drawn to the statement made by the Minister of Agriculture at King's Lynn, on 14th March, to the effect that the Government intend to submit proposals designed to put cereal growing on an economically sound basis, particularly in regard to wheat growing; and whether this represents the policy of the Government?


I would refer the Noble Lord to the statement of the policy of the Government which was made in this House on 1st August last, and particularly to the words: But as soon as the conclusions of the Imperial Conference are known, the Government will undertake whatever practicable steps can be devised to put cereal growing in this country on an economic foundation."—[OFFICIAL, REPORT, 1st August, 1930; col. 892, Vol. 242.]

Viscount WOLMER

Does not the right hon. Gentleman yet know the conclusion of the Imperial Conference?
