HC Deb 22 July 1946 vol 425 c1677
63. Mr. Garry Allighan

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he is satisfied that adequate cooperation exists with other Departments to ensure that such work as laying underground cables through agricultural land does not take place in circumstances, and at such a time of the year, when valuable foodstuffs are lost through such action.

Mr. T. Williams

I am satisfied that, in general, there is adequate cooperation between my Department and other Government Departments responsible for works of this kind to ensure the protection of growing crops on agricultural land wherever practicable. If, however, my hon. Friend has any particular case in mind, where it appears that there has not been such cooperation, and will let me have details. I will be glad to look into it.
