HC Deb 10 December 1919 vol 122 c1335W
Captain R. TERRELL

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Agriculture whether he is aware that the system of corn inspectors is regarded by agriculturists as wasteful and inefficient; and whether he intends to continue the system on the same scale in the coming year?


It was considered advisable upon the first occasion when farmers had to send in claims under the Corn Production Act to be in a position to verify all the acreages claimed for, and the machinery during the past year cannot be regarded as either wasteful or inefficient. The procedure to be adopted in the coming year is under consideration.
