HC Deb 19 April 1937 vol 322 cc1419-20
31. Mr. De la Bère

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he will be able to make a statement before the date of the Coronation setting out what steps the Government are taking to assist the poultry businesses throughout the country, and to announce their policy as regards the critical conditions that have developed in the poultry industry?

Mr. W. S. Morrison

I do not anticipate being in a position to make a further statement by the date mentioned.

Mr. De la Bère

Is it not the case that Departmental inertia rests upon "I dare not" rather than "I will"?

Mr. Morrison

The hon. Member's question seems to consist chiefly of unwarrantable assumptions.
