HC Deb 22 December 1916 vol 88 c1850W

asked the hon. Member for Wilton, as representing the Food Controller, if he is aware that numbers of occupiers of small plots of land such as are often attached to dwelling-houses are anxious to know how they can best serve the State in the use of such land; and will he issue immediately such specific advice or regulations as will be most suitable and practicable for carrying out this purpose?


Occupiers of gardens can best serve the State by growing the largest possible quantity of vegetables for the use of themselves and their families. It does not seem necessary or practicable to issue any specific directions in view of the varying local conditions and needs, but a large number of leaflets are published by the Board containing advice on particular points, and these leaflets can be obtained free on application.
