§ 5. Mr. Boothby
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what further steps His Majesty's Government propose to take to increase the supply of home-grown food in Scotland; and whether the oats question is still under consideration?
§ Mr. Elliot
I have nothing at present to add to the reply to a similar question by my hon. Friend given on 23rd February by my hon. Friend the Minister of Pensions.
§ Mr. Boothby
Does not my right hon. Friend think that a favourable opportunity may exist at the present time to devise some scheme to ensure against a fall in the price of oats below the cost of production in future, and will he look into the question from this aspect?
