HC Deb 01 March 1917 vol 90 c2160W

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food if the Food Controller will arrange with the military authorities that no competent ploughmen will be taken for military service in any part of the United Kingdom; and if he will come to a similar arrangement with the Ministry of Munitions?


My hon. Friend has asked me to reply to this question, and as regards the first part, I would refer the hon. Baronet to what was said by my Noble Friend the Secretary of State, in another place, yesterday. Perhaps the hon. Baronet would address the last part of the question to the Ministry of Munitions.
