HC Deb 08 March 1917 vol 91 cc589-90W

asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland whether he can now announce the result of his communications with various Departments in Ireland on the subject of the provision of cow pasturage in rural and other districts in Ireland: and whether, seeing that the provision of milk is essentially a food problem, legislation is in any degree necessary for securing such provision any more than it is in providing land for tillage purposes?


The provision of pasturage for cows cannot be dealt with under the recent Defence of the Realm Regulations, the object of which is the cultivation of the soil.
