§ 57. Mr. E. G. Gooch
asked the Minister of Agriculture if he will encourage members of food production clubs and allotment societies to increase production by making a contribution towards the cost of fertilisers purchased in bulk by clubs and societies.
§ Sir T. Dugdale
It is intended that schemes made under the Agricultural (Fertilisers) Bill, now before Parliament, shall provide for the making of contributions towards the cost of fertilisers acquired by associations of allotment holders or smallholders which buy fertilisers in bulk for re-distribution to their members. Food production clubs if their members occupy private gardens (which are not agricultural land) are not covered by the Bill.
