HC Deb 03 July 1918 vol 107 c1735W

asked the President of the Board of Agriculture whether his attention has been called to the fact that many farmers throughout the country have intimated to their executive committees that they are unable to continue the cultivation of their land recently broken up owing to the shortage of labour; and what steps he proposes to take to give those interested in agriculture a feeling of confidence in his Department, which is now at a low ebb?


In reply to his question, I beg leave to refer my hon. Friend to the Debate on the Adjournment of the House on Monday last, in which the whole position was discussed.
