HC Deb 31 May 1945 vol 411 c359

The following Question stood on the Order Paper in the name of Mr. Turton:

55. To ask the Minister of Agriculture if he will now make an announcement of the Government's long-term policy for agriculture.

Mr. W. J. Brown

On a point of Order. Is there no answer to Question 55?

Mr. Speaker

The hon. Member who put down Question 55 desired it to be postponed.

Mr. Brown

Does not the hon. Member for Thirsk and Malton (Mr. Turton) realise that he has denied the Minister of Agriculture an opportunity of giving us something more than a monosyllabic reply?

Mr. Turton

Is it not in Order for an hon. Member to postpone his Question, and thereby delay the delight of the hon. Member for Rugby (Mr. W. J. Brown); and may I inform him that I am attempting to postpone his delight until Tuesday next?
