§ 66. Mr. Turton
asked the Minister of Agriculture whether in order to increase the productivity of agricultural land, he will re-introduce the grants for land drainage and moor gripping discontinued in the financial crisis of 1931?
§ Commander Southby (Lord of the Treasury)
I have been asked to reply. My right hon. Friend has noted my hon. Friend's suggestion.
§ Mr. Turton
Will my hon. and gallant Friend convey to the Minister the fact that this weather is making lack of drainage very apparent?
