§ 55. Mr. Turton
asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he is satisfied that there are sufficient sacks for use in tie threshing of home-grown wheat this harvest.
§ Mr. T. Williams
While I can give no guarantee that local shortages will not occur, I am satisfied that all practicable steps have been taken to safeguard the supply of sacks for the coming threshing season.
§ Mr. Turton
Will the Minister bear in mind that his recently announced policy of giving a higher price for August and September will mean that a greater number of sacks will be needed, and will he make proper representations to his colleagues?
§ Mr. Williams
I agree that there may be a shortage here and there, but I can assure the hon. Member that we are doing our best.
