HC Deb 25 November 1946 vol 430 c1255
51. Lord Willoughby de Eresby

asked the Minister of Agriculture how many crawler tractors have been allocated to the Kesteven A.E.C. for re-allocation to the farmers in their district since 1st January, 1946.

Mr. T. Williams

Eighteen crawler tractors have been supplied to Kesteven since 1st January, 1946; these have been allocated by the county war agricultural executive committee on the basis of greatest need.

Lord Willoughby de Eresby

How do the figures which the right hon. Gentleman has given compare with the numbers allocated to other parts of the country?

Mr. Williams

I should think that Kesteven secures a fair allocation, compared with every other county. Need is always the basis of allocation.
