§ Commander O. LOCKER-LAMPSON
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Agriculture whether he has received protests from farmers against the continuance of the Daylight Saving Bill, and whether he has any statement to make on the subject?
Sir A. BOSCAWEN:
The answer to the first part of my hon. and gallant Friend's question is in the affirmative. I agree that the proposal to continue the Daylight Saving Bill is not favoured by farmers, but in view of the alleged benefit of the scheme to the great majority of the population, the Ministry is not in a position to take any action.
