HC Deb 26 April 1948 vol 450 c25
60. Mr. Vane

asked the Minister of Agriculture what technical reports on the development of machinery for land drainage he intends to issue, as a result of his Department's experience in different parts of the country both during and since the war.

Mr. T. Williams

Copies are already available of a paper on "The Development of Machinery for Field Drainage Works" which was read to the Institution of British Agricultural Engineers in March, 1946, by one of my engineers. I am sending a copy to the hon. Member.

Mr. Vane

Has nothing been published since March, 1946, in view of the amount of work which has been done?

Mr. Williams

I am not aware of any technical report other than that indicated in my reply.
