§ 53. Mr. Loftus
asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he is taking steps to ensured the utilisation of grass cut on all aerodromes as dried grass for stock thereby both saving shipping tonnage and aiding increased milk production?
Arrangements have been made with the Air Ministry for contact to be made locally between station commanders and the county war agricultural executive committees, whereby the latter assume responsibility for the use of suitable parts of aerodromes as arable, or as grass for hay, silage or drying.
§ Mr. Loftus
Can my right hon. Friend tell me whether any of this grass—a most valuable food—has already been dried and utilised for cattle feeding?
