HC Deb 06 December 1922 vol 159 c1815W
Commander BELLAIRS

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Transport whether he can state in broad outline in what way the chief railways of the United States of America assist agriculture, either by advice, research, or material concessions; and whether any other British railway proposes to follow the example of the Great Eastern Railway which has its own experimental poultry farm to assist poultry farmers?

Lieut.-Colonel ASHLEY

I have no information on these points, but will make inquiry in regard to the latter and inform my hon. and gallant Friend of the result.
