HC Deb 10 November 1921 vol 148 cc679-80W

asked the Minister of Agriculture what steps are being taken to carry out the undertaking in the Corn Production Acts (Repeal) Act to allocate money for scholarships and maintenance grants for the children of agricultural workers and others; and if he is aware that great hopes are being entertained of this promise in every agricultural area?


The Ministry has been in communication on this subject with representatives of the agricultural labourers' organisations, and a small com- mittee is now preparing a scheme to give effect to the intention of the Act. I am in full accord with the hon. Member as to the importance of the matter.
