HC Deb 11 December 1922 vol 159 c2400W

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether, seeing that the amount of food produced in this country was raised during the War from the amount required for 14,500,000 of the population to the amount required for 19,000,000 people, and that this standard of cultivation was maintained during the years 1919 to 1922, he will say what is the present productivity of the land of Great Britain on the same basis, as expressed in its ability to maintain the food supply of the people?


The point raised in the question asked by the hon. Member is being investigated, and I will let him have the results as soon as possible.
