HC Deb 22 October 1945 vol 414 c1678
64. Mr. Butcher

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he is now able to make any statement as to the provision of smallholdings for agricultural workers and ex-Servicemen with the necessary experience.

Mr. T. Williams

I would refer the hon. Member to the reply given on 15th October to my hon. Friend the Member for South-West Norfolk (Mr. Dye).

Mr. Butcher

How long is it before the county councils, and those desirous of taking up land, will be made aware of the policy of His Majesty's Government in this matter?

Mr. Williams

After the consultations which are now taking place with the county councils and other representative organisations have been completed.

Mr. De La Bère

Why is it that the agriculturists are always badly treated?
