HC Deb 05 December 1938 vol 342 c863
52. Major Braithwaite

asked the Minister of Agriculture when he intends to lay before the House his proposals as to barley, wheat, and sheep?

Mr. W. S. Morrison

As regards sheep and barley, I would refer my hon. Friend to recent replies given by my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Scotland and myself, and to my statement during the Debate on the Address on 15th November, and as regards wheat, I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply given on 1st November last to my hon. Friend the Member for South Croydon (Mr. H. G. Williams). I have at present nothing to add to these statements.

Mr. Boothby

Has my right hon. Friend also given consideration to oats?

Sir Malcolm Barclay-Harvey

Is the Minister aware of the very strong feeling in many parts of Great Britain on the subject of oats?
