47. Mr. De la Bère
asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he will indicate his policy as regards the re-seeding of land which has been ploughed out under the war-time ploughing campaign and reseeded to new leys, in view of the widespread increase of weeds attributable to the bad seed mixtures which are now being applied in many districts; and whether he will issue instructional advice on these matters.
The suggestion in the first part of the Question is not borne out by any information in my possession. As regards the last part, instructions have been issued.
Mr. De la Bère
Has the right hon. Gentleman ever seriously considered how very small is the information which is in his possession on this matter?
