HC Deb 10 May 1923 vol 163 cc2600-1W

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he will consider the possibility of making some interim arrangement with regard to agricultural credit facilities in the case of those farmers who are at the present time in considerable financial difficulties, and many of whom will become bankrupt if required to wait for relief until the proposed measures dealing with this question are introduced?


I am afraid it is impossible to make any interim arrangements on the lines suggested by my hon. and gallant Friend, but I can assure him that I am fully alive to the urgency of the matter and am taking all possible steps to expedite the introduction of the Bill.
