HC Deb 02 June 1919 vol 116 c1726W

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Agriculture if he can now state the reasons for the delay in the appointment of the Royal Commission on Agriculture and the publication of the list of Commissioners and the terms of reference; and whether he can now make any statement on the subject?


My Noble Friend, the President of the Board of Agriculture stated in the House of Lords on the 28th ultimo that he was going to Paris to see the Prime Minister on this matter and that after this visit he may be able to report something quite definite, etc. In the meanwhile I am unable to add anything to my previous answer.
