HC Deb 03 February 1947 vol 432 cc1395-6
57. Lieut.-Colonel Corbett

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he intends to serve directions for the growing of wheat for the 1948 harvest.

Mr. T. Williams

The crop production programme for 1948 has not yet been settled, and it would be premature for me to make any statement at present about directions to grow wheat in that year.

Lieut.-Colonel Corbett

Is the Minister aware that farmers want to know the answer to this Question before the spring, because it will affect the amount of corn they will be able to sow?

Mr. Williams

They will most likely get an answer.
