HC Deb 18 October 1916 vol 86 cc576-7W

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Agriculture whether, in view of the desirability of greater agricultural production, he will have a Report prepared by the Board of Agriculture upon the recent development of Danish agriculture on similar lines to the Report on German agriculture recently prepared and published by the Board?


I wish that it were possible to do what my hon. Friend suggests, but the strain of work upon the Board's officials unfortunately prevents it. I find that the German report was produced only as the result of much Sunday work, and that even Sundays are not now available. A good deal of information about Danish agricultural conditions is, however, already published in convenient form.
