§ The Minister of Agriculture (Mr. W. S. Morrison)
A great deal of information about the capabilities of the land is obtained through inquiries made by or in connection with my Department and the Department of Agriculture for Scotland, and by certain outside bodies. I am satisfied that the present procedure is preferable to that of embarking on a single comprehensive survey.
§ Mr. Morrison
No, Sir, and as the present system is elastic, surveys of a local character are undertaken as the need arises.
