HC Deb 07 March 1938 vol 332 c1522
39. Mr. De la Bère

asked the Minister of Agriculture what steps are now being taken to ensure the efficient equipping of farms with machinery in order to maintain and improve output and assist the production of home-grown foodstuffs, in view of the Government's preference for an increase in home-grown foodstuffs as opposed to food storage?

Mr. W. S. Morrison

I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply I gave him on 29th April last.

Mr. De la Bère

What are the Government really doing to save the home market for the home farmer?

Mr. T. Williams

Will the Government consider the advisability of taking a national survey of the whole of the credits to agriculture, and might they not institute some far better system than the multiplicity of landlords?
