HC Deb 22 November 1948 vol 458 c864
50. Lieutenant-Colonel Corbett

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he will restore to farmers the right to receive coupons in exchange for oats they sell for seed.

Mr. G. Brown

A farmer who as a result of selling his oats for seed is short of feedingstuffs for his livestock is allowed coupons, according to his need, up to the limit of the quantity of seed oats he has sold.

Lieut.-Colonel Corbett

Do the coupons allow the purchaser freedom to buy what feedingstuffs he likes, or is he now more limited than he was in former years as to the feedingstuffs with which he can replace his oats?

Mr. Brown

They cover the whole quantity that he is allowed, but they are valid only for home-produced feeding-stuffs.
