§ Mr. W. S. MORRISON
I assume that the hon. Member has in mind the question of home production of foodstuffs as a Defence measure. As indicated in reply to previous questions, the whole question of appropriate measures to secure the food supply of this country in time of war is under review by the Committee of Imperial Defence, with whom my Department is in close touch. I am not, however, in a position to make any statement.
§ Mr. MORRISON
That is a question of the general agricultural policy of the Government, and I will tell the hon. Member that from 1930 to the present time, agricultural production in England and Wales has increased by 20 per cent.
