The following Questions stood upon the Order Paper in the name of EARL WINTER-TON:

"59. To ask the Minister of Agriculture whether, in issuing instructions to war agricultural committees for the ploughing campaign for this autumn, he will consider making specific suggestions for the utilisation of deer parks and commons for the purpose?

60. To ask the Minister of Agriculture whether he is aware that on the small farms of the Weald of Sussex, Surrey and Kent, there is a number of owners and occupiers who were formerly agricultural labourers, many of whom are successful farmers; and whether he will consider introducing legislation to make it possible for agricultural labourers, approved by the war agricultural committees as suitable to take farms, to obtain loans for the purpose, repayable over a number of years, from the State?

Earl Winterton
