HC Deb 19 February 1917 vol 90 cc987-8W

asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland whether it is compulsory on labourers and small holders to take the Government seeds and manure supplied under the recent tillage Order when they can procure the seeds and manure they prefer cheaper elsewhere?


Labourers and small occupiers who prefer to obtain seeds and manure locally are free to do so on such terms as may be arranged between them and the vendors. In such cases the district councils will not be responsible for payment for the purchases.
