HC Deb 05 March 1912 vol 35 c349W
Captain O'NEILL

asked the President of the Board of Agriculture whether his attention has been drawn to the Report from the Select Committee of the House of Lords on the Sales for Agricultural Purposes Bill, wherein it is suggested that ground rice husks and ground oat shudes should be classified with chalk and ground leather in the preparation of feeding stuffs; and, seeing what effect this would have on oatmeal millers, especially as oat shudes are of nearly the same feeding value as meadow hay, will he say what action he proposes to take in the matter?


My attention has been called to the recommendation to which the hon. Member refers. In the event of the introduction of any legislation to give effect to it, the suggestion made by the hon. Member will be fully considered.
