Mr. A. T. DAVIES
asked the Minister of Agriculture whether his attention has been directed to the successful activities of the War Finance Corporation of the United States of America in the direction of restoring more normal conditions in the marketing of agricultural produce; and what steps have been taken with the object of providing credit facilities for farmers in this country in the absence of any such provision in the Trade Facilities Act?
Sir A. BOSCAWEN
The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. The Government is considering the whole question of credit facilities for farmers in this country, but I am not yet in a position to make any statement on the subject.
