HC Deb 10 December 1942 vol 385 c1700
56. Mr. Sorensen

asked the Minister of Agriculture the average wheat yield per acre from land cultivated respectively by county war agricultural committees and by private farmers, and Essex in particular; and what is the total acreage in each case?

Mr. Hudson

I regret that this information is not available.

Mr. Sorensen

In view of the interest in this matter and the importance of finding out which method is the better, cannot the right hon, Gentleman get the approximate figures?

Mr. Hudson

Not without a great deal of labour, and, in view of the shortage of staff, I do not think that would be justified
