§ 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.
