§ 26. Colonel Ropner
asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he is aware that, owing to the rearmament programme, many farmers are finding difficulty in obtaining new machinery; and what measures are being taken to prevent undue delay in meeting agricultural requirements?
§ Mr. W. S. Morrison
I have received no complaints from farmers that they are finding difficulty in obtaining new machinery. I have received one or two complaints from manufacturers of agricultural machinery of delays in obtaining supplies of iron and steel, each of which has been investigated, and I shall be pleased to investigate any specific complaint which my hon. Friend may bring to my notice.
